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:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
