Figure 12. Top plot: propagating wavenumbers in the sleepers compared with the acoustic wavenumber (the shaded region is the supersonic region). Bottom plot: sound power level difference between discrete and continuous sleepers. In the top plot, the solid lines are the wavenumbers shifted from and the dashed lines are the ones shifted from .
