The RIVAS FINAL CONFERENCE
“Vibration – Ways out of the annoyance”, was held in Brussels, on 21 November 2013
Please find here more information.
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.
