ANIMA D4.11 - Noise Management Toolchain
- 1. ANOTEC
In ANIMA WP4 an airport noise management tool chain has been developed, with which a variety of interventions for noise reduction can be simulated. This tool chain is described in detail in ANIMA deliverables D4.9 (Virtual Community Tool), D4.12 (Emissions Inventory model) and D4.14 (Noise Reduction Solutions Simulator).
Due to its complexity, this tool can only be used by aircraft noise experts. In order to extend the power of the tool to a wider audience, the most relevant parts of the tool chain have been implemented in an on-line tool. Two versions of this tool are available:
- Public Noise Toolset
This version has free public access and is mainly used to illustrate concepts related to airport noise management, as provided on the ANIMA Noise Platform. It only contains pre-defined user cases for educational purpose.
- Noise Management Toolset
This version is intended for professional users, providing them with an easy-to-use tool to assess different scenarios. It is available upon registration only.
The present document provides a description of the tool chain as implemented as a web service, covering both versions. The User Manual for this tool is available through ANIMA D4.15.
