    Abstract

    In this study a low noise steel bridge with the rubber-latex mortar coating is investigated, in which an air blast execution test and the impact tests are conducted. It follows from the present study that the execution of the rubber-latex mortar coating with 5 mm thickness is feasible with due care, and that the 10 dB reduction of noise level may be attained. In addition, the construction cost will be reduced with the use of the rubber-latex mortar coating.
