Acoustics and Vibration

Introduces system designers to the principles of acoustics and includes suggestions on how to address acoustic issues early in design. An approach is also presented on how to address an existing project with noise issues. Understanding acoustic design principles will help designers select and apply equipment and design distribution systems that more cost effectively meet the project's total environmental quality (TEQ) goals. This module has seven sections. The first explains acoustic terms and how to add and subtract sound levels,. The second section discusses the methods used to establish an acoustics rating both indoors and outdoors, including how manufacturer sound data is generated. The next two sections describes how to determine the acoustics design goal and how to estimate the sound at the receiver using the source-path-receiver concept. Specific guidelines are provided on how to estimate the sound at the equipment to control noise. The next section discusses troubleshooting existing projects, followed by controlling vibration at the design stage. Finally, guidelines are provided for preparing acoustic specifications.
