Title Acoustics - Noise emitted by machinery and equipment - Determination of emission sound pressure levels at a work station and at other specified positions from the sound power level
Original title Acoustique - Bruit émis par les machines et équipements - Détermination des niveaux de pression acoustique d'émission au poste de travail et en d'autres positions spécifiées à partir du niveau de puissance acoustique [in French]
Bibliographic information International Organization for Standardization, Case postale 56, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, Dec. 1995. iii, 7p. 8 ref.
Abstract This international standard specifies two methods for determining the emission sound pressure levels of machinery and equipment, at a work station and at other specified positions nearby, by calculation from the sound power level. The principal purpose of this determination is to permit comparison of the performance of different units of a given family of machinery or equipment, under defined environmental conditions and standardized mounting and operating conditions.
