KRYLOV, V.V., 1995. Ground vibrations from accelerating and braking road vehicles. IN: Proceedings of the 15th International Congress on Acoustics, Trondheim, Norway, 2, pp. 161 - 164.
The problem of generation of ground vibrations by accelerating and braking road vehicles
is considered theoretically for vehicles accelerating (decelerating) with a constant
acceleration a from rest to a constant speed, or braking to a stop from a constant speed.
According to the low-frequency approximation considered, an accelerating or braking
vehicle of mass M is modelled as a point horizontal traction force Fx = aM applied to
the ground and moving along with the vehicle. Frequency spectra of the vertical
component of the ground vibration velocity are investigated using the Green’s function
method for different values of acceleration, final (initial) speed and other parameters.
