SHIPBOARD NOISE AND VIBRATION FROM A HABITABILITY VIEWPOINT
This paper discusses the problems of noise and vibration due to propeller, propulsion machinery, and associated auxiliaries on commercial merchant ships, and their effects on shipboard habitability. Human sensitivity to noise and vibration is reviewed and some discussion concerning the relative positions of design agent, shipbuilder, and shipowner is presented. Results of shipboard noise and vibration surveys conducted by the Maritime Administration are presented together with proposed acceptable limits of noise and vibration.
