Silencers and acoustic enclosures A Guide to selection and assessment
|Publication Date:||1 November 2014|
This EEMUA Publication is intended as a guide to the selection of silencers and enclosures 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 in reviewing different 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. It does not include detailed specification of test methods and reference will need to be made to the appropriate standards for full test method details.
