Vibration protection with mass-spring systems

Project overview

Effective vibration protection on railway tracks calls for systematically aligned mass-spring systems. Experts in applied structural dynamics (vibration protection) provide predictions involving the reduction of excessive vibration. We carry out the theoretical calculations and the planning.

Our services

Prediction and evaluation of vibrations at the point of origin. Realistic assessment of the effectiveness of mass-spring systems. Evaluation of the optimal solution aimed at reducing undesired vibrations or structure-borne noise. Metrological survey of vibrations in current and final state. Project planning and optimisation of the modelling of mass-spring systems.
