ISO-17534 Quality Assurance and Test Cases

The dBmap.net Noise Mapping Tool has been assessed using the international standard ISO-17534-3 titled:

Acoustics – Software for the calculation of sound outdoors – Part 3: Recommendations for quality assured implementation of ISO-9613-2 in software according to ISO-17534-1” (https://www.iso.org/standard/66128.html)

Here are the results including links to the test cases so you can verify the calculations for yourself.

Quality Assurance Checklist

Below is a copy of “Table 71 – QA (Quality Assurance) form on ISO-9613-2:1996 including ISO/TR-17534-3 5.2 to 5.9”

Please note: Some of the features above that are not yet supported are planned for future development.

Test Cases (Scenarios)

Below are some test cases from the ISO-17534-3 standard that you can verify for yourself.

Please note: The test cases that were not included required modelling areas of differing ground factor, which is not yet supported by the noise mapping tool.

All the test cases below are “homogeneous” in ground factor.

Scenario T11

Scenario T11 – “Flat ground with homogeneous acoustic properties and cubic building – receiver at low height”
