About this book

The book reports on the 11th International Workshop on Railway Noise, held on

9 – 13 September, 2013, in Uddevalla, Sweden. The event, which was jointly organized

by the Competence Centre Chalmers Railway Mechanics (CHARMEC) and the

Departments of Applied Mechanics and Applied Acoustics at Chalmers University of

Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, covered a broad range of topics in the field of railway

noise and vibration, including: prospects, legal regulations and perceptions; wheel and

rail noise; prediction, measurements and monitoring; ground-borne vibration; squeal

noise and structure-borne noise; and aerodynamic noise generated by high-speed trains.

Further topics included: resilient track forms; grinding, corrugation and roughness;

and interior noise and sound barriers. This book, which consists of a collection of peer-reviewed

papers originally submitted to the workshop, not only provides readers with an

overview of the latest developments in the field, but also offers scientists and engineers

essential support in their daily efforts to identify, understand and solve a number of

problems related to railway noise and vibration, and to achieve their ultimate goal of reducing the environmental impact of railway systems.
