The Tisseyre + Associés company developed a calculation technique based on finite elements. Applied to the environment, this technique makes it possible to integrate the exact topography of the ground and the exact shape of the buildings including, architectural details if necessary. This meshing technique makes it possible to calculate the effects due to the topography and the obstacles, whatever their size and layout.
From a data bank of several hundreds of measurements of industrial noise sources or of noise due to human activities, we can calculate their impact on these areas and urban or suburban spaces.
This tool is a real aid to making decisions on the positioning of various activities and the creation of noise barriers of appropriate height.
