The book reports on the 11th International Workshop on Railway Noise, held on9 – 13 September, 2013, in Uddevalla, Sweden. The event, which was jointly organizedby the Competence Centre Chalmers Railway Mechanics (CHARMEC) and theDepartments of Applied Mechanics and Applied Acoustics at Chalmers University ofTechnology in Gothenburg, Sweden, covered a broad range of topics in the field of railwaynoise and vibration, including: prospects, legal regulations and perceptions; wheel andrail noise; prediction, measurements and monitoring; ground-borne vibration; squealnoise and structure-borne noise; and aerodynamic noise generated by high-speed trains.Further topics included: resilient track forms; grinding, corrugation and roughness;and interior noise and sound barriers. This book, which consists of a collection of peer-reviewedpapers originally submitted to the workshop, not only provides readers with anoverview of the latest developments in the field, but also offers scientists and engineersessential support in their daily efforts to identify, understand and solve a number ofproblems related to railway noise and vibration, and to achieve their ultimate goal of reducing the environmental impact of railway systems.
