Research and Development on Reducing Interior Noise in Shinkansen Vehicles

Noise inside Shinkansen cars increases with increase in train speed. The authors have conducted considerable development to reduce this interior noise and successfully developed new rolling stock with interior noise levels that are equal to or less than that in previous trains even when the maximum speed increased from 275 km/h to 320 km/h. In this paper, the authors discuss the direction of development to further increase the speed of Shinkansen trains by reviewing past developments such as the effects of various types of products developed and noise measurement results obtained through running tests.
