Guide to the Selection and Assessment of Silencers and Acoustic Enclosers
|Publication Date:||1 January 1988|
This document is intended as a guide to the selection of silencers which are appropriate for use with various noise sources. It is aimed at the practising engineer with a limited knowledge of acoustics to assist in the Specification of the most suitable silencer for a particular purpose and to assess its operation when it is installed. In addition it should assist him in reviewing differing proposals submitted by vendors. However, the experienced acoustic engineer may also find it useful as an aide-memoire.The guide places considerable emphasis on the mechanical aspects of silencers which have to be considered for various applications so that due consideration can be given to engineering design, operational aspects, safety, and cost.
