A European Union research project is about to be launched which will create a sophisticated new model for reducing tyre noise.

This ‘microscopic road traffic noise-modelling project,’ (ROTRANOMO), will consider the type of vehicle, tyre-road interaction, traffic management, driver behaviour, environmental planning and vehicle structure changes to develop a more effective noise calculation model.

The European Commission says that current models do not provide sufficient information to effectively assess combinations of noise factors, for example of tyre structures and road surfaces.

The project will involve German engineers RWTUV, a conference on ‘surface transport technologies for sustainable development,’ in Valencia, Spain, was told.
