Title Acoustics - Measurement at the operator's position of noise emitted by earth-moving machinery - Stationary test conditions
Bibliographic information International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Case postale 56, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, 2nd ed., 1998. iii, 9p. Illus. 3 ref.
Abstract This international standard specifies a method for determining the noise emitted by earth-moving machinery at the operator's position. The measurements are made in terms of the time-averaged A-weighted sound pressure level while the machine is stationary with the engine operating at the manufacturer's rated speed under no-load conditions. The standard applies to excavators, crawler and wheel tractor-dozers, crawler and wheel loaders and backhoe loaders.
