NOISE IN SHIPS

The matter of setting specific standards for allowable noise levels in commercial ships must necessarily be a cooperative venture between the state of ship registration, the shipbuilder, and the shipowner. While this is obviously a delicate and cumbersome background in which to work, there have been impressive advances in the development of realistic goals for maximum permissible noise levels and practical techniques for noise and vibration control during the past fifteen years. This paper presents a summary of such goals and techniques as agreed upon for the protection of ship safety, and the health and comfort of ship occupants.
