Abstract

STARDAMP (Standardization of damping technologies for the reduction of railway noise) is a Franco-German research project within the DEUFRAKO framework that unites end users, manufacturers and research institutes. The target of STARDAMP is to support the transfer from R&D of wheel and rail dampers to their regular application. A software tool has been developed within STARDAMP that is dedicated to the prediction of the efficiency of wheel and rail dampers. The necessary input can be produced using relatively simple laboratory measurements. The rail response is assessed by combining track decay rates measured on a real track with decay rates measured in laboratory on a free rail that is equipped with dampers. The wheel response is calculated by using a finite element model of the wheel together with measured damping data. The tool is designed not only for the use by experts within the development of wheel and rail dampers. Indeed, a main goal of STARDAMP was to provide an easy-to-use tool to infrastructure managers and public authorities in order to help the decision making process regarding railway noise mitigation measures.
