Written by Anca-Maria MOSCOVICI, Oana GRECEA

The increase in road traffic in the recent years brings into question the complex issue of noise pollution.

Their identification is essential because on these building facades the noise level resulting from exposure to road noise exceeds or threatens to exceed at least one of the limit values.
