Abstract: Because quiet areas in dense urban environments are important to well-being, the prediction of sound propagation to shielded urban areas is an ongoing research focus. Sound levels in shielded areas, such as canyons between rows of buildings, are strongly influenced by distant sources. Therefore, propagation factors such as metrology, screening, and intermediate canyons as occur between a source canyon and a receiver canyon must be addressed in an engineering propagation model. Though current models address many important propagation factors, engineering treatment of a closed urban canyon, subject to multiple internal reflections, remains difficult.
