STRUCTURE-BORNE NOISE EMISSION ON UNDERGROUND RAILWAYS: TEST-RIG MEASUREMENTS AND PRACTICAL RECOMMENDATIONS

The reduction of noise and vibration emission from tunnels in mass-transit systems has assumed greater importance in recent years because of the many new lines and the associated increase in the nuisance caused by structure-borne noise in nearby buildings. Choice of effective damping measures is made possible by the measurement of damping elements or whole systems in test rigs in which real-life conditions are simulated. On the basis of the test results a recommendation has been worked out for assessing the nature and extent of the necessary measures at the planning stage.
