NOISE LEVEL MEASUREMENTS ON THE UMTA MARK I DIAGNOSTIC CAR (R42 MODEL)

The R42 Model mass transit car currently operating on the "N" line of the new York City Transit System was selected for experimentation and tests. For this purpose, the car was instrumented and designated as the UMTA Mark I Diagnostic Car. Noise levels generated by "stop and go" operations of the Diagnostic Car were measured and tabulated in this report. Measurements were made inside of and outside the car during operation on the "N" line of the New York Transit System and during operation at the DOT High Speed Ground Test Center at Pueblo, Colorado. The report contains tabulations of the noise levels measured, time history charts, 1/3-octave frequency analyses and pertinent comments on the information obtained. (Author)
