The continued demand for higher powers, the use of gas turbine propulsion systems and the invocation of more stringent vibration and airborne noise criteria have placed increased emphasis on the control of shipboard vibration and airborne noise on both Commercial and Military ships. The authors present a brief background review of the specifications invoked in recent shipbuilding programs and the approach employed in the development of the DD963 and LNG designs. The paper is presented in two parts, the first dealing with vibration control and the second with noise control. Part I includes the Approach to Vibration Control, Vibration Specifications. The Measurement and Evaluation of Shipboard Vibration, Propeller Excited Forces, The Prediction of Hull and Machinery Vibration, Recent Findings and Recommended Research Efforts. Part II deals with Current Commercial and Military Airborne Noise Specifications. The Prediction of Compartment Noise, and Techniques Employed in the Control of Compartment Noise.
