Trains and railway infrastructure are often a subject of discussion regarding their acoustics and vibration performance

Trains and railway infrastructure are often a subject of discussion regarding their acoustics and vibration performance. It is important that these structures and means of transportation do not have a negative impact on users or the surrounding environments.

Xi can undertake a whole variety of measurement campaigns which can focus on different aspects of the performance. From Whole Body Vibration assessments to understand the vibration effects on humans to more specialized analysis such as acoustic roughness, our engineers are trained to help you overcome all problems encountered. These assessments can be undertaken at all stages of the design or project. From initial stages such as the construction stages to performance assessments of already built sites and locomotives, Xi will assist with on the spot measurements or long term monitoring.

In addition to on-site measurements, our modelling team can also produce computer simulations that can be used to predict behaviour and find optimal solutions to the problem. Therefore, saving the time and resources of our clients.
