The scope of this Procedural Guide includes the basic elements that are required to conduct and report the results of Sound and Vibration Testing for building HVAC systems.

PURPOSE

This guide is intended for trained Sound and Vibration (S&V) Supervisors and Technicians to assure that correct procedures are used when performing S&V testing. This guide may be used in the initial review of a project S&V testing requirements or as an on- site reference document that can be used during the testing process.

A trained S&V Supervisor/Technician should be familiar with equipment and structures used in buildings and design approaches used to address sound and vibration isolation and mitigation of their transmission.

A trained S&V Supervisor/Technician should be versed in the use, care, adjustment, and application of instrumentation used for S&V testing.

A trained S&V Supervisor/Technician should be capable of evaluating building conditions and equipment to determine the potential source of a sound or vibration problem.

This guide is not intended to be used to design corrections for problems found during S&V testing. Designing S&V solutions is the responsibility of the building designers and their acoustical consultants using the S&V test results as a guide.
