Underground Train-Induced Noise in Urban Buildings

Application ID: 24001

Underground train grids span large areas under London, Paris, New York, and other cities. The building regulations require strict noise standards, and failure to comply could result in significant losses in the market prices of developments. Therefore, train-induced noise has to be considered at the early stages of development planning and pricing evaluation.

This conceptual model couples structure-born vibrations through the ground into a building frame with the acoustic pressure waves inside of the building.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
