The process of estimating noise levels is only an aid in establishing a final ship design. The procedures for estimating sound levels from a given source strength rely heavily on experimental data and will continue to do so for a long while. The supervision of outfit work, to ensure that the designer's requirements are precisely translated into the ship, is extremely important. Apparently trivial faults, which may have no significance for the outfitting workmen, can ruin an elaborate sound reducing arrangement.
