CONSIDERATIONS FOR AIRBORNE NOISE CONTROL IN SURFACE SHIPS

The limitations of bulkhead treatments are demonstrated to emphasize the necessity of quieting shipboard machinery if the OSHA/BUMED deafness avoidance criteria are to be achieved in machinery spaces. Two current programs to backfit machinery noise treatments into modern combatant U.S. Navy ships are discussed. The expected results are presented to support the contention that shipboard machinery spaces can be quieted, at reasonable cost, to within the OSHA/BUMED limits.
