Covers the theory of railway noise and vibration with practical applications of noise control technology at source to solve noise and vibration problems from railways. This book describes each source of noise and vibration such as: rolling noise, curve squeal, bridge noise, aerodynamic noise, and ground vibration and ground-borne noise.
The author is Professor of Railway Noise and Vibration at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton. He has worked in the field of railway noise since 1980, with British Rail Research in Derby, UK, TNO Institute of Applied Physics in the Netherlands before moving to Southampton in 1996. He was responsible for developing the TWINS software for predicting rolling noise.
