Using the MICADO software package, the CSTB was able to calculate noise reduction on nearby building facades provided by overhang noise barriers along a deep-level railway line. MICADO proved essential because standard engineering methods could not treat the complexity of the situation.

Starting from the ICARE software package, the CSTB developed the OSCAR calculation interface, specifically adapted to predicting the level of intelligibility in railway carriage, taking into account interior sources of noise, as well as exterior sources such as the train wheels.
