  1. 1. On the Directivity of Railway Noise Sources

    Author : Xuetao Zhang; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; railway traction noise; railway rolling noise; line source; railway aerodynamic noise; moving source; equivalent source line; De-Dopplerization; sound emission time; sound immission time; directivity; the Doppler factor;

    Abstract : This dissertation deals with the directivity of railway noise. The directivity of railway noise is of particular importance when we have high-rise buildings close to the track, tunnel openings, partial barriers, or when we calculate the maximum sound pressure level during a pass-by based on the sound power level of the different sub-sources of a train.

  2. 2. Tread Braking of Railway Wheels - Noise-related Tread Roughness and Dimensioning Wheel Temperatures

    Author : Tore V Vernersson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rail chill; block material; temperature; heat partitioning; railway; corrugation; thermoelastic analysis; tread braking; noise;

    Abstract : Block braking is a commonly used braking system for freight wagons and other types of railway vehicles. One or several brake blocks are pressed against the tread (running surface) of the wheel, which is also in rolling contact with the rail. READ MORE

  3. 3. The impact of railway vibration and noise on sleep

    Author : Michael Smith; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; railway vibration; noise; sleep disturbance; polysomnography; cardiovascular disease;

    Abstract : Sleep is a vital component of good health, and sleep loss is associated with impaired cognition, decreased psychomotor performance, cardiovascular disease, adverse effects on endocrine and metabolic function, negative mood, impaired memory, and more. A growing burden of freight transportation on global railway networks will likely lead to an increase in nocturnal vibration and noise at nearby dwellings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Applicable directivity description of railway noise sources

    Author : Xuetao Zhang; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; directivity; the Doppler factor; scattered fluid sound; railway noise; perpendicular dipole pair;

    Abstract : For a sound source, directivity is an important parameter to specify. This parameter also reflects the physical feature of the sound generation mechanism. For example, turbulence sound is of quadrupole directivity whilst fluid-structure interaction often induces a sound of dipole characteristic. READ MORE

  5. 5. New Methods for Reducing Ground-Borne Noise in Buildings above Railway Tunnels

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Byggvetenskap

    Author : Osama A. B. Hassan; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : Ground-borne noise; railway noise; in-plane waves; wave-guides; scattering; propagation constant; input mobility; elastic stratum; dual integral equations;

    Abstract : The rapid expansion of major cities in the west Europeancountries has accentuated the need to exploit every potentialsite for new establishments, e.g. areas over train tunnels andnear railway tracks in general. READ MORE
