Abstract:

This document reports data relevant to cost-benefit evaluation of noise limits for Navy shipboard compartments. It relates noise effects, determined from subjective responses of personnel, to shipboard sound levels. It provides a procedure for determining noise-limit goals based on subjective noise effects, and proposes such goals for various types of compartments. Sound level data of existing ships are presented for estimating the amount of noise control required to meet present or proposed noise limits.
