Abstract Four types of shaping machines were identified as being used most frequently in the manufacture of concrete blocks. The sound pressure levels and impulse noises associated with the use of >100 representative shaping machines produced between 1980 and 1989 were measured. The sound pressure levels ranged from 99 to 126dB(A). Acoustic enclosures were found to be the best available method of noise control for these machines. Summaries in English, French and German.
