Within the sphere of noise and its control, the problems for passengers include those of ensuring adequate privacy between adjacent cabins and of keeping the transmission of noise from machinery spaces to a suitably low level. At the same time, the risks of permanent hearing damage to the crew due to prolonged exposure to high noise levels have resulted in the requirement for noise control in machinery spaces. The question of privacy is also becoming increasingly important in non-passenger ships, such as tankers, which can undertake long voyages, sometimes with family units on board. Methods of noise rating and criteria for various spaces within ships are discussed, and methods of sound insulation are analyzed.
