Use of Sound Power in Ship Noise Assessments

Mike Swanwick

 

For practicing acousticians, normally dealing with air-borne sound, there sometimes is a lack of visibility of what is physically happening in the world of structure-borne vibration.  Typically, ship noise as a source in the ocean, or internal vibration from a marine engine is unfamiliar territory.
This presentation demonstrates the distinct advantage in using source sound power terms and re-introduces some electrical analogies to help visualise the various problems encountered.  This presentation has been collated to help make better measurements and predictions of structure borne vibration at source.
This is not original work, but is a practical re-introduction of several disparate but well-established methods that can provide a comprehensive overall method for analysing source sound power based problems.

 

Attendance is free, no need to book, everyone welcome.  CPD certificates will be provided.  If you have any queries, please contact fiona.rogerson@arup.com.

 

As is traditional for IOA Midlands Branch meetings those attending are cordially invited for a meal at a local Indian restaurant after the meeting. Please let Fiona know if you would like to come, so we can book a table.
