Feasibility of a Train Horn with Optimized Directivity: Environmental and Occupational Noise Benefit of an Ideal Train Horn
Keywords: Horn, noise, highway-rail grade crossing, safety, environment, occupational, detectability, acoustic hailing device, rolling stock, train horn
Abstract: This views the feasibility of and suggests an acoustical specification for an optimized horn. Decibel of the horn inside vehicles was compared to the optimized horn and several...
