  5. 5. Distance Attenuation of Tram Noise in Open Urban Areas

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för arkitektur och samhällsbyggnadsteknik

    Author : Emil Regnström; Mattias Willig; [2018]
    Keywords : Trams; sound; distance attenuation; point source; line source; sound pressure level; sound power level; sound spectrum; Oslo; Gothenburg;

    Abstract : The aim of this work was to investigate how the rate of the sound attenuation from a tram changes over distance in an open city environment, and to get a better general understanding of the tram as a sound source. By setting up an array of microphones with an internal distance of approximately 8 meters, perpendicular to the tram tracks, measurements were carried out at three different locations in Oslo as well as two in Gothenburg, and the sound attenuation was analyzed for a total of five different tram types.
