Noise is an important type of environmental pollution that effects human hearing health and
perception can ruin physiological and psychological balance and may impair work performance. Noise pollution
has been taken into consideration all over the world and has become an area of concern in many countries.
However, this issue has not been solved completely, even in developed countries, and day-by-day noise sources
are spreading, bringing about an increase in their negative effects.
In recent years, the increasing number of vehicles parallel to the fast growing population, transportation and
need for shipping has caused an increase in highway noise pollution.
In this study, highway noise resources and their effects have been determined, and two situations were
compared by examining the situation before and after placing noise-reducing barriers. In this study, we chose
the Atakum Ilbank facility and its public housing located in Samsun as the pilot study area. With the help of the
Cadna A® simulation program, area noise maps for both normal conditions and after the placement of a barrier
was produced and analyzed.
