INTERIOR NOISE REDUCTION IN A RECREATIONAL VAN

A study was made to determine the effect of combinations of acoustic treatments on the interior noise levels in a 3/4 ton van. The effect of barriers, absorbers, and vibration dampers in various combinations on the dBA levels are given for both idle and highway operating conditions. A noise reduction of up to 10 dBA was obtained for certain barrier and absorber combinations.
