A CONTRIBUTION TO RESEARCH ON THE ORIGIN AND REDUCTION OF NOISE CAUSED BY RAILWAY VEHICLES ON CURVES

BEITRAG ZUR KLARUNG DES ENTSTEHENS UND DER VERHINDERUNG VON KURVENGERAUSCHEN BEI SCHIENENFAHRZEUGEN

The authors analyse the frequency spectrum of noise travelling through the air and noise spread by steel structures and caused by wheel rims and rails. They note that the grinding noise is caused by friction between the wheel tread and the rail head on the horizontal plane, and not, as was thought formerly, by friction between the wheel flange and the side of the rail head. Noise travels through the wheels and the rail. It has not yet been determined where noise reduction measures should be applied to obtain the most effective results.
