The definition of how ground-borne noise is radiated into rooms in surrounding buildings due to underground subway lines is diverse in different countries, especially in the dominant frequency range. In the present paper, a set of field tests were carried out in Suzhou city, China to obtain ground vibration induced by subway vehicles and radiated noise in buildings. Preliminary analysis of frequency range is 1-300Hz based on the strength of frequency domain analysis of the ground-borne

Based on this theory, the contributions of different vibration sources to the noise are distinguished. The analyzed result shows that the recognized dominant frequency range of the ground-borne noise is between 20~310Hz. This research also indicates a difference of A-weighted sound levels between the tested result and contrasting criterions.
