NOISE LEVELS IN RAILROAD OPERATIONS
This paper presents a discussion on the major noise-producing operations both in railroad yards and for on-line operations, and quantifies typical noise outputs from these activities. The variables which influence this noise production are also discussed as well as the formulation of suitable mathematical synthesis models for noise prediction analysis.
- This paper was contributed by the Rail Transportation Division of ASME for presentation at the Winter Annual Meeting, 17-22 November 1974, New York, New York.
