Measurement of Industrial Sound
|Publication Date:||1 January 2004|
The scope of this Code includes measurement procedures in a variety of acoustical environments, including outdoor settings influenced by background noise. Generally, sound pressure levels and/or sound power levels in prescribed frequency bands are used to quantify the sound emission of industrial equipment and facilities. Sound pressure level measurements or sound intensity measurements obtained using the procedures of this Code may be used to calculate sound power level.
