PREDETERMINING NOISE LEVELS IN A RAILWAY ENVIRONMENT: METHODS OF CALCULATION

This article describes two computerized methods for calculating the noise level produced by a train under given conditions. One is two-dimensional and plots noise in a plane perpendicular to the track. The other, originally applied to motorway noise, is three-dimensional and takes account of the length of trains, irregular terrain and echoes from natural or artificial obstacles. These two methods are complementary and give fairly accurate results determining the best railway layout through built-up areas or open ground.
