Abstract In 16 manufacturing halls the noise levels emitted by a source of known sound power were measured along several sound propagation paths. The manufacturing halls differed in shape, size and acoustic properties. Comparison of the measured noise levels with those calculated by various methods yielded good agreement up to distances of 40m from the source. Sound direction, frequency or obstacles in the sound propagation path had hardly any influence on the noise levels.
