NOISE ABATEMENT ON DIESEL LOCOMOTIVES. SUMMARISING PRESENTATION OF THE MEASURES ADOPTED FOR THE ABATEMENT OF NOISE AND VIBRATIONS ON DIESEL-ENGINED RAIL VEHICLES
The report gives an outline of the theory of noise and vibration abatement, deals with measures affecting the design of the vehicle and with the special materials (insulating materials) required. It also contains guiding values for acceptable noise levels and a review of still unsolved problems concerning acoustics and vibration resulting from railway traffic. A more detailed treatment of the basic theories of noise and vibration abatement and a number of references to applications in practice can be found in Technical Document ORE DT 25. The information presented in this document had originally been intended to form part of report RP 7 and references to this document will therefore be found in the text. The report represents a summary of the questions dealt with by the B 104 and the E82 Specialists Committee respectively.
