Paper Abstract

Road car transport is today the main species of cargo and passenger transport. However, car transport is accompanied by large negative effects with adverse environmental impacts. Therefore, it is an effort to shift part of the transported costs to rail transport. But the problem is vibrations which created the passing vehicles. The vibrations are transmitted over the rails and the railway infrastructure into the rock environment. These vibrations can adversely affect buildings around the railroad. This article presents a comparison of vibration measurements using a classical commonly used seismic sensor and innovative fiber-optic interferometric sensor. Presented results are based on the real measurements of train traffic. Presented results can serve as a basis for mathematical models which predict the future load of objects in the vicinity of railway tracks.
