Transit Maintenance and Storage Facilities

Typical noise reduction issues associated with Transportation Maintenance and Storage facilities are engine idling noise, rolling noise and that ear-piercing high pitched squeal from tight turns in the yard.

In the case of streetcar maintenance facilities, we developed testing methodology that mounted microphones on the vehicle to determine the noise emissions generated between the wheel and the rail. This testing led to the acoustic modeling of the facility, and to the design of noise control solutions to reduce noise emissions and complaints from residents in proximity. As well, we helped our client select noise mitigation options from the supplier of the vehicle.
