ROSANNE is a collaborative project in the 7th EU Framework Program which aims at harmonizing measurement methods for skid resistance, noise emission and rolling resistance of road pavements as a preparation for standardization. The project started in November 2013 and is developing and improving standards in the field of working group CEN/TC 227/WG 5.

Regarding the influence of the pavement on the road traffic noise emission, the main objective is to combine the existing measurement methods of SPB (ISO 11819-1) and CPX (ISO/DIS 11819-2) into a stable and reliable harmonized pavement noise emission characterization method. A respective procedure is being developed within the project and its potential use for noise calculation methods like the one proposed by the CNOSSOS-EU project is investigated. The first two years of research focused on analyzing and comparing existing noise measurement methods to specify the noise properties of road surfaces as well as investigating the temperature influence of possible correction measures; respective results will be presented in a separate paper on this issue within this conference. Activities related to the compatibility with the CNOSSOS-EU calculation method and to the experimental validation are still ongoing. The present paper shows the current draft of the procedure developed.
