Title Evaluation of impulse noise - Preliminary study
Original title Utvärdering av impulsbuller - En förstudie [in Swedish]
Bibliographic information Undersökningsrapport 1979:22, Arbetarskyddsstyrelsen, 17184 Solna, Sweden, 1979. 21p. Illus. 15 ref. Price: Swe-cr.10.00.
Abstract Literature survey of the state of the art concerning the evaluation of hearing damage hazard due to exposure to impulse noise (using equivalent continuous noise). Results of measurements made during arc welding operations with different methods for evaluating impulse noise; the results show that face shields worn by welders give efficient protection from impulse noise (energy mainly concentrated in the 1,000-8,000Hz frequencies).
