STUDY ON THE MECHANISMS OF THE GENERATION OF THE WHEEL/RAIL NOISE AND ITS TRANSMISSION TO THE VEHICLE - (AN EXAMINATION BASED ON THE RESULTS OF NARROW BAND FREQUENCY ANALYSIS)

We studied the mechanisms of the generation of the wheel/rail noise and its transmission to the vehicle in high speed operation on an almost straight track like that of SHINKANSEN. Tests were carried out on the SHINKANSEN test track and the results were examined by narrow band frequency analysis. It was concluded that the contribution of the noise due to the vibration of a wheel and a bogie frame to the train noise is small, their damping is not effective and the internal noise is mostly due to the contribution of the air-borne noise transmitted through the floor.
