ACOUSTICS OF MASS TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

This report discusses noise and vibration problems in the use of rail rapid transit systems. In a rail operation wheels and rails are the prime offenders. The truck is a secondary offender. Sound can be reduced by just treating the wheels and rails. Some noise will remain from the truck, but unless a major sound reduction is required, the truck need not be treated. The research and development facilities of B.F. Goodrich Company are continually working on acoustical materials and design methods for transit noise control.
