Title Acoustics and vibration - Laboratory measurement of vibro-acoustic transfer properties of resilient elements - Part 1: Principles and guidelines
Original title Acoustique et vibrations - Mesurage en laboratoire des propriétés de transfert vibro-acoustique des éléments élastiques - Partie 1: Principes et lignes directrices [in French]
Bibliographic information International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Case postale 56, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, 1st ed., 1997. iii, 20p. Illus. 16 ref.
Abstract This International Standard describes the determination of vibro-acoustic transfer properties of resilient elements used to reduce the transmission of sound and vibrations from engines, appliances, structures etc. The present Part 1 serves as an introduction and a guide to parts 2 to 5 of ISO 10846, which describe laboratory measurement methods for the determination of the most important quantities governing transmission of vibrations through linear insulators. It provides the theoretical background, the principles and limitations of the methods and guidance to selection of the most appropriate standard of the series.
