The reflection from the facade of a building is considered in terms of specular reflection and diffuse scattering. Using the concept of the continuous A-weighted sound pressure level, the importance of reflected noise is evaluated by comparing it with the contribution of the direct wave and background noise. The results may be applied directly in the case of buildings flanking one side of a road. © 1994.
