About this book

This volume contains the contributions to the 10th International Workshop on Railway Noise, held October 18–22, 2010, in Nagahama, Japan, organized by the Railway Technical Research Institute (RTRI), Japan. With 11 sessions and 3 poster sessions, the workshop featured presentations by international leaders in the field of railway noise and vibration. All subjects relating to 1. prospects, legal regulation, and perception; 2. wheel and rail noise; 3. structure-borne noise and squeal noise; 4. ground-borne vibration; 5. aerodynamic noise and micro-pressure waves from tunnel portals; 6. interior noise and sound barriers; and 7. prediction, measurements, and monitoring are addressed here. This book is a useful “state-of-the-art” reference for scientists and engineers involved in solving environmental problems of railways.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is the latest reference available for any engineers or researchers working in the field of railway noise and vibration. … The book has many simple illuminating figures, diagrams, and tables; well organized summaries; and practical tips on related subjects … . I strongly recommend this collection, which can be used as a valuable reference for practitioners of railway noise and vibration prediction and control.” (Hongan Xu, Noise Control Engineering Journal, Vol. 60 (3), May-June, 2012)
