A review has been made of the literature in the area of acoustics, vibration, shock, and blast phenomena related to effects on the physiological system and attenuation effects of materials and devices. In addition, information from sources other than the literature pertinent to an evaluation of the significance of acoustic hazards in the military environment, is also presented. Damage-risk and standards criteria are presented, and further studies are suggested to advance the state-of-the-art in acoustic hazards protection as well as to exploit the potentials of acoustic phenomena for the investigation of material properties.
