Noise generated from maglev vehicles mainly consists of two components, one is due to mechanical noise and the other due to aerodynamic noise. The former is due to the vehicle-guideway interactions and the latter results from the unsteady air flow around the vehicle. Aerodynamic noise could become more predominant around 225 km/h for maglev vehicles. In this paper, the aerodynamic noise of maglev vehicles is investigated experimentally. The results of the wind tunnel experiments of maglev vehicle models are introduced and compared. The comparison shows that the position of the main noise is between the bottom of the vehicle model and the rail. It is also found that the emitted sound pressure level is related to the gap size between the vehicle bottom and the rail.
