In this paper, numerical experiments about the structure borne sound countermeasures were conducted, by paying attention to the structure vibration of RC girder. Numerical experiments for the vehicle/track system model was carried out using the DIASTARSIII program, developed by the Railway Technical Research Institute, which analyzes dynamic interaction between the vehicle and railway structure. Also, numerical analysis for the track/structure system model was carried out using the DIARIST program for the track structure. As a result, we elucidated the vibration reduction effect of various countermeasures. First, vibration reduction effect of soft track pad of 30MN/m is recognized in the frequency band above about 70 Hz by measurement results and analysis results. Second, the frequency band which obtained reduction effect depends a great deal on natural frequency of vibration-reducing track.
