It is the purpose of this paper to present the resultant effect of geometrical spreading, air absorption, Doppler frequency shift and the distortion of the sound field due to the motion of a line source. It is assumed that the source is moving slowly along a straight line. The results obtained can be used for prediction of the A-weighed sound pressure level of railway noise.
