Abstract:

This paper presents airborne noise data obtained in Navy shipboard compartments in support of an evaluation of airborne noise criteria on Navy ships. Additional reports which interpret these data are being prepared. They will present statistics on the relationship between present noise levels and existing noise limits they correlate sound levels with subjective ratings of the effects of the noise obtained concurrently by questionnaire and they recommend noise limits for future use. A-weighted, C-weighted, and octave band sound pressure levels were measured on a not-to-interfere basis in compartments aboard 8 US Navy ships. These ships were the CV-61, CV-64, DD-972, DD-976, DDG-13, FF-1063, LST-1185, and LST-1191.
