About this book

This volume contains the contributions to the 9th International Workshop on Railway Noise, held Sept 04-08, 2007, in Munich, Germany. The workshop featured lectures by international leaders in the field of railway noise and vibration.

All subjects relating to railway noise as noise sources (rolling noise, aerodynamic noise, bridge noise, sonic boom), prediction tools and theoretical models, new noise reduction, technology as well as ground-borne vibration are tackled.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is a collection of 64 papers that were presented at the 9th International Workshop on Railway Noise (IWRN). … This book is a valuable reference for anyone involved in noise and vibration studies for rail systems. … As a summary, this volume is a book worth having as a good overview of rail noise and vibration problems worldwide. Recommended." (Hugh Saurenman, Noise Control Engineering Journal, Vol. 57 (1), 2009)
