Abstract:   (5582 Views)
In this research, the Integrated Noise Model (INM), has been calibrated to perform the noise pollution evaluation in the vicinity of Mehrabad International Airport (MIA). First a conceptual model was developed to analyze the compatibility of airport noise with the land use based on the most widely accepted noise pollution standards. Second, the data generated from the INM package was compared with real data acquired from the test stations positioned around airport. Finally, the outputs of the calibrated model was compared with the noise pollution standards. The results show that more than 70 percent of the land use in the vicinity of airport are not compatible with the accepted noise levels. The generated noise contours was superimposed on the digital map of the city and the areas which violated the permitted levels was recognized. Moreover, the more noise sensitive facilities such as hospitals, schools, and residential units can be positioned in areas which have the permitted noise levels. The model and the procedure can be used to design new airports. Noise evaluation of existing operational airports can be performed by the model developed in this research.
