Summary:
An inversion study will be published in Science China: Technological Sciences. The study will examine the excitation source function of environmental vibration due to urban rail traffic, which may be deemed a novel approach. Observation data indicate that uneven wheel–rail contact in the short wavelength range is the main generation mechanism of ground vibration.
