The ultra weak variational formulation (UWVF) approach is used to study the effect of semi-transparent road traffic noise barriers of limited height. This numerical method is extended to simulate sound propagation through a porous medium, based on the Zwicker and Kosten phenomenological porous rigid-frame model. An efficient approach to calculate noise levels in multi-lane road traffic noise situations is presented. The UWVF method was validated successfully by comparison with finite-differencedoi:10.3813/aaa.918420 fatcat:fd4qba3bo5asvjgfxkmp3gbkbm
