Strategies and Tools to Assess and Implement noise Reducing measures for Railway Systems

Objective

STAIRRS proposal is a response to Task 2.2.2/5 in the 5th Framework Programme Sustainable Mobility and Intermodality: Competitive and Sustainable Growth.

It contains three work Packages:
WP1. Development of a tool for a common European scale cost benefit study of different options for implementing low noise solutions, leading to industrial development and implementation of optimal solutions on a local, national and international level.
WP2. Refinement of assessment of noise from railway systems, using advanced procedures to prevent the need to duplicate measurements for interoperable vehicles, and thus reduce testing costs, by providing values applicable to various countries, by a single operation. Such methods will also allow separation of vehicle and track contributions to rolling noise.
WP3. Validation to strategy makers using results from WP1 and WP2.
