The Authors explain some of the more important ways in which the shipbuilder, by means of acoustic analyses and appropriate action taken at the planning stage, can ensure better acoustic design from the outset at a comparatively low cost and so avoid unnecessary expenditure on noise-reduction measures after the ship has been built. The information, which makes frequent references to the literature, is arranged under the headings: General Information on Noise Generation and Noise-Reduction Measures. Main Sources of Noise in a Ship (Propeller--Gearing--Main Machinery--Auxiliary Machinery and Pipe-Systems). Reducing the Radiation from Vibrating Surfaces. The Solution of Hydro-Acoustic Problems through Model Tests. Concluding Remarks. Order from: BSRA as No. 48,298.
