||This scientific and technical report outlines the criteria for selecting silent or low-noise fans and aims at developing specifications and data relevant to this choice. It also deals with the problem of reducing noise levels generated by existing or future fan-based equipment. Brief overviews of fans and the principles of noise reduction at the source are followed by detailed sections on types of fans and their sound levels. An overview is also presented of the equipment available on the market and the points to consider when developing specifications for use in the majority of situations. Topics: airflow noise; case study; design of equipment; fans; noise control; noise level measurement; selection of equipment; sound attenuation; sound propagation.
