NEW FACTS ON RAILWAY NOISE

NEUERE ERKENNTNISSE ZUR SCHALLABSTRAHLUNG VON SCHIENENFAHRZEUGEN

The article reports on measurements carried out and not on theoretical studies. These measurements show that railway noise depends not only on speed and distance, but also on the shape of wheelsets, the type of bogie, and the condition of the running surface. The author goes on to reaffirm the case for disc brakes, which are far less noisy than cast iron brake shoes. Lastly, he comments on the test results carried out to ascertain which, of the rail or the wheel, is the main source of noise.
