This bulletin establishes guidelines for evaluating the design of a ship's hull with respect to its noise and vibration environment. These guidelines are particularly useful in the important field of habitability design, as the document contains data on acceptable limits of crew and passenger exposure to noise and vibration. These guidelines have been derived from an extensive review of various proposed criteria for human response, examination of actual shipboard noise and vibration perfomance data, and judgement as to the acceptability of ships in operation. This information is necessary for the development of acceptable limits of vibration and noise for different ship compartments and locations. Additionally, the guidelines provide a set of criteria to which a ship design may be compared.
