PREDICTION AND CONTROL OF RAIL TRANSIT NOISE AND VIBRATION - A STATE-OF-THE-ART ASSESSMENT

The report contains results of a review of current technology for the prediction and control of urban rail transit noise and vibration, with primary emphasis on the parameters affecting propagation paths. Included are tools for the prediction of wayside noise and vibration adjacent to both at-grade and elevated transit track, groundborne noise propagation from subway tunnels, and noise in cars and in stations. In addition, several noise and vibration control techniques are evaluated including resilient rail fasteners, floating slabs, noise barriers, elevated structure enclosures, structural damping, and acoustical treatment of stations and tunnels.
