Abstract: As one of the environmental pollutions, noise pollution has become a serious issue and is affecting the quality of our living environment. Singapore as one of the densely populated cities is facing the noise problems evident in HDB household survey which shows that residents living in HDB estates continuously regard noise as one of the second or most disliked aspects of life. Consequently, literature review, simulated theoretical approach, and data analysis were employed for three objects namely simplified model, Singapore public building typology, and generic urban block typology in this study. This study aims to examine the accuracy of the Calculation of Road Traffic Noise (CRTN) method in the context of Singapore, find out adjusted simulated values for simulation study, and finally to have a better understanding of the relationship between the sound performance and parameter indicators of building typologies that could comply with the design tendency of high-density development.
