Railway Acoustics

At SLR, we are focused on providing superior technical services with an emphasis on controlling noise impacts at the source by best-practice design.

We work on all forms of rail transport systems, rapid-transit metro systems, urban and intercity passenger rail networks, and heavy-haul freight operations. We have expertise in noise issues associated with rail support facilities at all stages of design, procurement, and operation, including intermodal terminals, rail yards, stabling facilities, and maintenance depots. 

SLR undertakes advanced analyses of rail corrugation and acoustic roughness factors, a critical aspect in railway noise and vibration assessment. If the track is corrugated or rough, excessive noise and vibration will be produced so it is important that this aspect is studied.
