N2kR-TC is a software application that presents a collection of road traffic noise examples, calculated according to the Nord 2000 Road Method (2006). The examples form a set of Type Cases, which represent pre-calculated situations. The situations include the type cases given in TemaNord 1996:525 ”Road Traffic Noise – Nordic Prediction Method”. In addition situations for building areas are included. As a main feature the noise level calculations can be made taking weather conditions into consideration, thus allow for the calculation of Lden – levels.
SINTEF ICT has developed this software, on request from the Nordic Public Roads Administrations.
First version 1.0 of the program was released May 2006Present version 1.1 of February 2012 has changed local storage of pre-calculated data, to work under to Windows 7.
Note that N2kR requires that Microsoft Dot Net Framework 2.0 is installed. If the N2kR Setup program detects that it is missing, it will automatically run the process of downloading and installing it. Alternatively the Microsoft Dot Net Framework 2.0 can be installed via Windows Update.
