PROPOSAL ON NOISE CRITERIA FOR SEA-GOING SHIPS

Noise criteria in terms of sound pressure levels and frequencies are proposed for the passengers and the crews accomodation, for the bridge and for the engine room of sea-going ships with respect to hearing conservation, audibility of whistles, speech communication, comfort and annoyance. It is shown that the NR-noise rating curves efficiently correlate with annoyance and that sound level A in contrast to industrial noise and road traffic noise is impracticable for ship noises. A survey of acoustical measures applied in existing ships illustrates that the proposed criteria can be met.
