This experimental research is intended to research on noise generation of rolling surfaces. This problem is important in bearings, railroad transport and many technical applications. Experimental research was performed in such a way that noise and vibration from any technical equipment didn’t interfere; only ambient vibration and noise influenced measurement. Tests were performed on special setup, which is described in the paper. Parameters of vibrations on steady plane and noise in surroundings of rolling cylinder were registered. For this purpose three sets of test surfaces with different roughness parameters were performed. It was experimentally proven that dry and lubricated surfaces generate different noise sound frequencies, found some interest dependencies on connection between generated vibrations and sound. The proposed technique can be applicable to bearing noise evaluation, especially when special materials are used. Research brings useful results, which can be used to estimate noise in newly designed devices. Finally, conclusions on results are made.
