This project dealt with the development of a methodology for the prediction of railway induced noise and vibration levels. As a result, a series of recommendations and apps for railway lines were developed both for surface and underground railway traffic.
Development of a numerical model for the simulation of railway induced noise and vibration propagation phenomenon. Analysis of soil structure interaction effects on the vibrational response of railway bridges. Development of a simplified and fast solution for the assessment of vibration levels in constructions built in the vicinity of railway lines. Experimental validation of the numerical results obtained in the different project phases.
