The paper presents some modified versions of the "cabin equation" of Buiten and Janssen to take account of such factors as "narrow path" radiation from the decks into the bulkheads, the insertion loss due to floating floors, the radiation by the bulkheads into the cabins and the overall accuracy. Results from laboratory experiments and from investigations on board are compared. The differences between the calculated and measured data for three groups of ships indicates that acceptable noise levels in accommodations can be achieved by the use of suitable noise countermeasures carefully applied.
