EMPIRICAL FORMULAS FOR STRUCTURE-BORNE SOUND LEVELS OF SHIP MACHINERY

In connection with extensive structure-borne sound measurements on board 14 cargo ships, measurements on machinery foundations and hull sections adjacent to the propeller were measured. The paper reports the main results of a statistical treatment of velocity levels for engine foundations obtained from these measurements and also from different literature sources. Empirical formulas for diesel main engines of different sizes and auxiliary diesel engines derived from the measurement results are presented.
