The mechanisms by which noise reaches the passenger in a rail vehicle are discussed. A summary is given of the basis on which suitable specifications for the interior noise level in a new vehicle can be selected. Methods are described by which the acoustic performance of a rail vehicle can be assessed at the design stage. Areas requiring further investigation, in particular the prediction and control of the structure-borne noise input to a vehicle, are highlighted.
