A Highway Prediction Model (HPM) using the ray acoustics modeling approach is developed in this research. The HPM model can be used to quantitatively predict the environmental noise levels on highways of different pavements. Comparison between the measured noise levels using the SPB method and predicted noise levels with the model developed shows that the prediction model established is reliable for estimating highway noise in Canada.
