ICR presented as an exhibitor at the 2009 BcnRail

At the end of last year, ICR took part for the first time in the international trade fair BcnRail, held in Barcelona.

The company's long history is very much interlinked with the rail market as several of its methodologies have indeed been developed very much with this sector in mind. For this reason, and as BcnRail is one of the country's main trade fair events, ICR presented the different acoustic engineering services, methods for vibration control and its main acoustical solutions which it has been providing for many years.
 
One such solution was ATPA (Advanced Transfer Path Analysis), and possibly the one which attracted most visitors as it is little known and one of the most advanced solutions which the company provides. One of its main advantages is that it can be used in all fields and involves dividing the object being studied into different parts and determining  how much each contributes to overall noise in terms of vibro-acoustics. In the case of a train, for instance, analysis can be carried out on all windows, walls, floors and other components which emit acoustic noise. Visitors were able to see the solution for themselves in a model which had been installed at the stand and which reproduced a simulated analysis process.
 
At the same time, great interest was also generated amongst visitors with regard to vibro-acoustic measurement, control and monitoring methods in major railway construction projects. In this respect, ICR offered interested parties the chance to monitor noise and/or vibrations continuously at specific points on a construction site for the required period of time without hampering the client's operations. This can all be done without the need to use extensive equipment or deploy staff on site. In this way, the client is able to ensure at all times the comfort of citizens as well as the quality of life in the buildings adjacent to the construction site while also receiving information regarding compliance with regulations.
 

ICR is an Acoustic Engineering resolving problems of noise and vibrations. ICR works for the railway, car, industry, construction and environmental sectors. The company researches (R+D) new methods to solve vibroacous-tic problems. ICR also designs software for quality control and transmis-sion loss and teaches acoustics to private companies and official colleges.
