This paper discusses the principal sources of noise generated by high-speed ground vehicles and the impact of this noise on both the community and the passengers. Authors anticipate that noise levels will be exceedingly high, making land within approximately 1000 ft of some (surface) vehicle guideways unfit as residential areas. Noise levels inside vehicles are predicted to be sufficient to cause temporary hearing loss for occasional exposure and permanent hearing loss for lengthy exposures.
