Abstract

An urban noise inquiry on the population of the city of Turin using a methodology to define standard sites for the epidemiology surveys F. lannelli, C.

A survey has been carried out in some urban roads of the city of Turin, where two main noise sources are present: vehicular traffic and trams. The objectives were to evaluate the perceived disturb by the population in function of some parameters of the monitored sites (i.e. noise, traffic, geometric conditions, surrounding environment, etc.).
