SIMPLE PREDICTION EQUATIONS FOR WAYSIDE NOISE FROM TRAINS

In work being undertaken to assess the noise impact of a new urban railway system, it was found desirable to formulate one or two simple equations predicting wayside noise which are given in this short report. The equations were derived by looking at the curves obtained from experimental results of other researchers and they were tested against measured data. The equations refer to a ground level road bed at zero grade with a flat surrounding area free from reflecting or attenuating surfaces. /TRRL/
