Abstract

Planning, construction and experimental tuning of an urban railway noise cadaster M. Presta & S. Ricci University of Rome "La Sapierzza" - DITS - Transport Area Italy Abstract In the last twenty years increasing public sensibility for urban noise, the relevance of the transport noise sources and the complexity of their interaction have hastened the research in this sector. The contribution of railway traffic to the acoustic environment may be relevant in those urban areas where the railway infrastructure enters to increase its accessibility. Moreover on these infrastructures various traffic flows (passengers and freight) are often overlapped. The key operational procedure for an integrated preventing and resolving action is the overlapping of a noise cadaster, summarising the acoustic effects of the railway traffic, to the acoustic zoning, resulting from land use and regulations. The paper deals with the whole procedure of planning, building up and tuning on the basis of experimental measureme
