SOUND RADIATION OF RAIL WHEELS AND THE TESTING OF SOUND-ATTENUATING WHEELS FOR LOCAL AND LONG-DISTANCE RAIL TRAFFIC

DIE SCHALLABSTRAHLUNG DER SCHIENENRAEDER UND ERPROBUNG SCHALLGEDAEMPFTER RAEDER FUER FERN- UND NAHVERKEHR

The rolling noise of trains is substantially reduced and the shrieking of wheels in the curves of local transport systems completely avoided by means of a new type of sound-attenuating wheel. The sound absorbers are of simple design, inexpensive, and are long-lasting. They are easily fitted to the wheel, and also wheels already in service can be equipped without difficulty. The absorber increases the weight of the wheel by only a few percent.
