Abstract:

Under current practice, the means to fight noise and vibration on ship structures are applied on already finalized designs of ships. This is the more expensive solution to the problem. The most efficient design with less cost can be achieved if from the beginning of the design process, the acoustic silencing requirements are implemented. The author put forth for himself as the purpose of this book, a plan to systematize such an approach, gained through his research experience on the acoustic characteristics of vibration and radiation of ship structures, sources of the main contributors of vibrations and noise on ships, causes of their origins, and methods of mitigating those vibrations and noise. This book is intended for research scientists, engineering, and technical experts involved in the field concerned with the reduction of vibration and noise in ships and other means of transportation.
