Title Manually portable chain-saws with internal combustion engine: Determination of sound power levels - Engineering method (grade 2)
Original title Scies à chaîne portatives avec moteur thermique: détermination des niveaux de puissance acoustique - Méthode d'expertise (classe 2) [in French]
Bibliographic information International Organization for Standardization, Case postale 56, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, 1995. iii, 7p. Illus. 5 ref.
Abstract This International Standard specifies a method for determining the sound power level of manually portable chain-saws. It provides all the information necessary to carry out efficiently and under standardized conditions the determination, declaration and verification of sound power levels of manually portable hand-held chain-saws with an internal combustion engine, as primarily used in forestry. The use of this International Standard ensures the reproducibility of the determination of sound power levels within specified limits determined by the grade of accuracy of the basic noise standard used for the determination of sound power levels.
