NOISE PREDICTION AND PREVENTION IN SHIPS
The prediction and prevention of structure-borne sound on board merchant ships are discussed. Results of full-scale and model-scale experiments have indicated that the main power flow in the vertical direction in a ship structure is determined by the propagation of flexural waves in the plate elements. Based on these results a prediction model is developed. It is found that the velocity level of a deck is a function of the input power at the source, wave-numbers, masses, losses and dimensions of the plate elements in the structure. The attenuation of structure-borne sound is also a function of frequency. Predicted and measured structure-borne sound levels are compared. The effects of damping layers and resiliently mounted superstructures and accommodation systems are also discussed.
