Environmental concerns are high on the list of possible problem areas for proposed high speed ground transportation (HSGT) systems. A Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Highway Traffic Noise Prediction Model written in FORTRAN known as STAMINA 2.0 was developed in the early 1980's to predict noise levels from roadway transportation sources. In anticipation of the need to model both high speed ground transportation and highway traffic on common right-of-ways, modifications were performed and implemented to a PC version of the STAMINA model. This paper describes this work which was done at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida. The information provided in this paper should be useful to any agency or firm interested in noise analysis and barrier design models used for HSGT and highway traffic.
