In recognition of the time and effort that Dr Gerry McCullagh put into the promotion and education of acoustics throughout Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, the Irish Branch of the Institute of Acoustics holds an annual lecture to which an eminent acoustician is invited to present a talk on their area of expertise.
This is the eleventh Gerry McCullagh Memorial Lecture, and it is a pleasure that Rupert Thornely-Taylor has accepted our offer to present a talk looking back over half a century of noise and vibration consultancy, bringing us up to date with the latest WHO environmental Noise Guidelines and other topical issues including the environmental assessment of major projects.

He has advised clients throughout the world in the fields of: environmental assessment, industrial noise and vibration, transportation noise and vibration, groundborne noise and vibration, construction noise and vibration, community noise, building acoustics and noise control in product development. Rupert Taylor Ltd is a world leader in the field of vibro-acoustics of railway structures and tunnels, with extensive experience in the measurement of railway vibration and noise, and the modelling, by numerical methods, the time-domain vibro-acoustic-dynamic behaviour of a moving train on a bridge or in a tunnel including all the effects of wheel and rail roughness and dynamic forces.
