REPORT NUMBER: 291550-2
SUBJECT: Maglev
KEYWORDS: Noise Analysis, Noise Impact, Risk Assessment
ABSTRACT: The introduction of a new transportation system into a community generates concerns about the change in the noise environment brought about by the new source. When the new source has unique features, as does maglev, or when the community has not had prior exposure to a particular source, as will happen with a maglev system, the concerns are heightened. The unknown community reaction to such a potentially significant new development is not an acceptable risk for the builders and financiers during these times of environmental awareness. This report presents a means of rating the noise created by maglev in terms of the disturbance it creates.
