The major environmental challenges encountered by metropolitan cities now-a-days is the traffic noise besides air pollution. During urban planning, one thus needs methods/tools which can assist the designer in designing, planning and adoption of suitable measures for traffic noise abatement and control. The objective of the present work is to model traffic noise in terms of single-noise metrics LAeq, TNI and NPL. ANN has a capability to model complicated multi-variable functions and thus can model a system with more variables than that can be included in any other conventional models. The problem of traffic noise is non-linear in nature, so, a model based on Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) is suggested and compared with the analytical models in this work.
