Abstract

The paper presents an overview of noise propagation mechanisms, wheel–rail interaction models, and the European legislation regulating noise emitted by railway traffic. Acoustic and non-acoustic methods for noise mitigation are described, and their effectiveness is evaluated. Recommendations are given about criteria that can be used for their evaluation so as to ensure the greatest possible level of their compliance with local conditions. The design documentation of Lithuanian international lines is analysed in order to determine noise mitigation measures applied in that region, and to assess their effectiveness.

Keywords
