The paper describes the present acoustic environment in railway passenger vehicles, and discusses the various mechanisms leading to this. The factors providing a basis for an internal noise criterion are stated, and suitable criteria for different classes of stock suggested. A more detailed discussion is presented of various problems encountered during investigation, and of the experiments and analytical techniques evolved during their solution. It is pointed out where the experience gained in this work can be applied, and also where gaps still remain to be filled by future investigation.
