WS atkins Noise & Vibration has released a Windows version of its RailNoise software which calculates operational noise generated by railways and guided transport systems (RG 3.97 p189). Running under Windows 95, 98 or NT4, RailNoise 98 is available in three versions: LT for smaller projects, Standard, and Enterprise with noise contouring capability for applications requiring greater capacity.

Models of noise levels at specific locations can be created by conventional digitising or by tracing over scanned images on the screen, allowing results to be superimposed onto scheme drawings. All versions of RailNoise 98 produce noise contours made up of colour-coded blocks, with the Enterprise version capable of displaying detailed line or colour-filled contours.
