2 What s the problem? Public sensitivity to vibration issues has increased in recent years. While noise is an issue for all modes of transport, vibration is specific to rail and therefore stands out all the more as a criticism of rail transport. Opposition to new lines is as much about the effects of vibration as about noise. Vibration mitigation features heavily in the cost of railway infrastructure projects Complaints about vibrations and vibration-induced noise increase where line-side noise is reduced, e.g. using barriers Lack of established solutions for vibration from surface railways Ensure that in the coming years the expansion of rail transport in the EU is not hindered by public opposition on the grounds of vibration. Innovative solutions for hot-spots Low-vibration vehicles DB Systemtechnik, TTZ 112 Akustik und Erschütterungen,

3 Efficient vibration mitigation requires: Reliable modelling tools for the planning process optimum choice of mitigation measures avoid over-engineered vibration reduction measures Toolbox of highly efficient vibration reduction technologies Rail fastening system, + + Under sleeper pads, Soil stiffening, Trenches, Low vibration slab track, Low vibration vehicles, Vehicle & track maintenance,. Clear procedures for the assessment of the available technologies Physical parameters Comparability of different options Human perception High demand for future activities particularly on European scale DB Systemtechnik, TTZ 112 Akustik und Erschütterungen,

4 The R&D activities must follow the requirements from the end users Track Subgrade Transmission Vehicle Maintenance R & D priorities have to be defined according to the contributions of the subsystems to the overall target Other Criteria: Costs for implementation Life Cycle Costs Lead times Compatibility with system requirements (safety, maintenance etc. ) Retrofit option DB Systemtechnik, TTZ 112 Akustik und Erschütterungen,

5 7th EU framework programme 3rd call: Attenuation of ground-borne vibration affecting residents near railway lines Definition and validation of procedures for the evaluation of annoyance and exposure to vibration Development of cost-efficient and industrially viable technologies, concepts and prototypes for the mitigation of vibration and of vibration induced noise Reduction of vibration creation at source through improved vehicle/track interactions, Improved maintenance strategies for track and rolling stock Development of designs, components or new techniques - including track irregularities, maintenance of wheel shape, rolling stock and track design Reduction of vibration emission from the infrastructure and transmission in the ground Establishment of test procedures to efficiently monitor and control the performance of vibration mitigation measures under realistic conditions Establishment and validation of engineering tools to assess the efficiency of rolling stock- and infrastructure-based mitigation measures DB Systemtechnik, TTZ 112 Akustik und Erschütterungen,

7 Focus and main objectives of RIVAS: Freight traffic. This includes: freight wagons locomotives typical for freight traffic infrastructure characteristic for the major freight routes in Europe Where technically feasible, developments shall be applicable also for other modes of rail traffic. Open lines; several established mitigation measures especially dedicated to tunnels already exist which, however, cannot be similarly applied to open lines because of stability and other problems Activities will be driven by end user organisations to ensure that the project results will meet the specific requirements of the end- users Reduction of vibration excitation at source and on the propagation path Development of innovative solutions for vibration mitigation technologies. This will include the rail fastening system, resilient elements for track and subgrade, and the rolling stock. Solutions will be developed mainly for ballasted track. Slab track is included as option for replacing ballasted track Development of cost effective test procedures Validation of mitigation measures in laboratory tests and field tests DB Systemtechnik, TTZ 112 Akustik und Erschütterungen,

8 Integrating activities Modelling studies in all the WPs Field testing in all the WPs WP1 Assessment and monitoring procedures vehicle track ground WP5 Rolling stock solutions WP3 Track solutions WP4 Propagation solutions WP2 Generation by vehicle-track interaction Track maintenance Rolling stock maintenance WP4 Subgrade improvement DB Systemtechnik, TTZ 112 Akustik und Erschütterungen,
