In this paper, a robust and fast numerical methodology to compute re-radiated noise in underground railway tunnels is proposed. In this study, the noise analysis does not account for the noise radiation from the train wheels, the rest of the rolling stock structure and the aerodynamic noise. The method is based on decoupled approach, where the acoustic and elastodynamic problems are solved separately on the assumption of weak coupling between the two subdomains. Two-and-a-half dimension (2.5D) finite element boundary element (FEM-BEM) is used to analyse the elastodynamic problem. The computation of the re-radiated noise from the vibration of the structure is done with a 2.5D acoustic boundary element method (BEM). The acoustic as well as elastodynamic BEM used in this analysis is based on globally regularized integrals based on singularity subtraction.
