A transfer path analysis was carried out on the Siemens Combino-Plus tram in Almada – Seixal (south of Lisbon) to provide measurement data for structure-borne noise. The measurements allowed ranking of the different noise paths from the bogie to the car-body of the existing tram and therefore helped to predict interior noise for new vehicles in the design phase. The measurement was validated by a direct measurement of the transfer stiffness of a damper.
