Example for application of the PTV VISION VISUM software tool for the calculation of noise and emissions from motor traffic
Today, pollution is a worldwide problem. Pollution is a result due to the rapid growth of civilization and the number of motor vehicles. It causes deterioration and poisoning of the environment, including air, water and soil, and poses a serious threat to the human health. With the process of urbanization, the need for mobility over short and long distances with use of motored vehicles also grows. In addition to the forecast of transport demand for a certain period of time, there are also software tools that allow the calculation and forecast of the percentage of harmful emissions and noise caused by traffic. In this paper, the module that contains the software tool Visum for the environment for the city of Prilep, North Macedonia will be presented.
