Abstract This basic directive, which summarises the regulations in force and literature published in the Federal Republic of Germany on this subject, is intended to give information on the general principles of noise control. Sections are devoted to: noise measurement and evaluation (methods, apparatus, parameters); noise charts; noise emitted by specific installations and machines; sound propagation (air, solids); noise reduction (health engineering and financial aspects); noise reduction at source (design, construction and maintenance of machines); limitation of sound propagation (vibration absorption, silencers, enclosure, acoustic barriers, building construction, acoustic treatment of premises); hearing protective measures (workplace design and layout, work organisation, screens, personal hearing protectors), planning. Appended: diagrams and tables for calculations, guidelines for technical agreements (with model), references to literature, regulations and standards.
