REDUCTION OF STRUCTURE-BORNE SOUND IN SIMPLE SHIP STRUCTURES. RESULTS OF MODEL TESTS

The attenuation of structure-borne sound in the propagation path between source and receiver is increased by means of damping layers, resilient mounts and changed boundary conditions between main deck and supersturcture. Damping layers are found to have only a local effect. Resilient mounts between superstructure and main deck can reduce the noise levels in the superstructure by the order of 10 db(a). Order from NSFI as No. 16736.
