ISO 2017-2:2007 establishes requirements to ensure appropriate exchange of information regarding the application of isolation for vibrations and shocks generated by railway systems.
ISO 2017-2:2007 is applicable to the construction of new railway systems. It may also be applied to previously installed systems when the user wishes to solve a new vibration problem arising from railroad degradation, when new environmental land use planning requirements are put in place, or when new vibration-sensitive land development occurs in proximity to existing railway systems.
It applies to vibration problems encountered in a railway environment but does not address vibration problems within railway cars (carriages) themselves.
ISO 2017-2:2007 intends to give appropriate responses to questions highlighted by the producer and users (why, what, when and how to isolate mechanical systems).
