NOISE AND VIBRATION OF A STEEL WHEEL/STEEL RAIL PERSONALIZED RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM

The report describes a test program which has been conducted to establish baseline noise levels and ride characteristics for a state-of-the-art steel wheel on steel rail personalized rapid transit vehicle. A full-scale test vehicle and an 840-foot track, including two 30-foot curves, have been built and used for 128 test runs under various conditions of operation. Permanent records have been made on magnetic tape and oscillograph paper for future analysis as needed.
