In this presentation, Mr. Dorfner shares Getzner's solutions to vibrations and structure-borne noise generated by railways, which have a detrimental effect on track superstructure components such as rails, sleepers, and ballasts. He also underscores the importance of introducing more elasticity into the railway superstructure to reduce maintenance outlay and life cycle costs.
