 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Ground vibration, effected by rail services, is an important environmental concern, affecting European citizens nearby any rail infrastructure. Surveys show that many Europeans are subjected to annoying levels of feelable vibration and vibration-induced noise. Although solutions are available for track in tunnels, tracks at grade are a much more extensive problem even for vibration-induced noise. However, solutions for tracks at grade are lacking: for some problems currently no feasible solutions at reasonable cost are available. A group of railway operators, infrastructure managers, infrastructure and rolling stock manufacturers, and construction companies, end users of vibration mitigation technology, have gathered, to propose a major project for Railway Induced Vibration Abatement Solutions (RIVAS). They aim at providing tools and methods to reduce vibration below the threshold of annoynace and induced noise below background levels by 2013. The group includes the expertise of research organisations and universities with specialist laboratory and theoretical modelling facilities. The issues are treated in a holistic way with the focus on reducing the annoyance to lineside residents. The project examines all vibration effects and aspects of the system: vehicle, track, propagation, freight and high-speed rail services. WP1 establishes the test procedures to monitor and control the performance of vibration mitigation measures under realistic conditions WP2 develops and evaluates mitigation measures based on reducing the excitation of vibration at the vehicle–track interface by improved maintenance WP3 develops and evaluates mitigation measures for ballasted and slab tracks WP4 will develop and evaluate mitigation measures based on sub-grade improvement and ground barriers within the railway infrastructure WP5 addresses the impact of the vehicle Each of the solutions is to be validated with field tests on the major European rail networks represented in RIVAS'

Introduzione (Teaser)

While plenty of research has been conducted on noise as a side-effect of rail transport, vibrations have received less attention because they are less perceptible. To fill this gap, EU-funded researchers have explored ground-borne vibration with a view to minimising its environmental impact.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The EU promotes railway transport as the most sustainable surface transport mode both for freight and passenger movements. However, the noise and vibrations are still perceived as weaknesses in need of improvement. In particular, vibrations caused by track and wheel irregularities that are specific to rail stand out as a criticism of rail transport.

In the 'Railway induced vibration abatement solutions' (http://www.rivas-project.eu/ (RIVAS)) project, researchers had three years to explore ways and means of reducing vibrations to values near or below the threshold of perception. They developed a series of technologies to control vibrations at source or reduce them on the transmission path.

RIVAS technologies were primarily developed to meet the needs of railway operators and infrastructure managers. The toolbox includes rail-fastening systems, sleepers and resilient elements for the tracks and sub-grade. These can find applications in suburban, regional and high-speed operations that tend to be built away from residential areas.

Project researchers also defined test procedures to monitor and control the performance of anti-vibration measures under realistic conditions. During the course of the project, the new technologies were tested on or close to existing railway lines and their effectiveness was measured. Based on the results, the team compiled guidelines for their design and implementation.

The undertaking has set the groundwork for establishing European standards and the harmonisation of metrics. The project team has defined methodologies for determining the nature and extent of the impact of vibrations on buildings nearby any railway infrastructure and their residents. Based on the estimated annoyance, track and vehicle conditions could be classified in terms of vibration-induced noise.

RIVAS has been one of the largest EU-funded projects aiming to safeguard the railway sector's commercial competitiveness. Its 26 partners are keen to put the solutions proposed into practice and increase the quality of life for European citizens near railway lines.
