DESIGNING TO MEET SPECIFIC NOISE AND VIBRATION CRITERIA ON OFFSHORE PLATFORMS

Noise control in the offshore industry introduces novel problems to the oil industry. The major differences between offshore and onshore noise control are discussed, and the concepts of noise control in terms of direct sound from the equipment, the reverberant noise introduced when the equipment is enclosed in a module, and problems of structure-borne noise are developed and illustrated with examples.
