Title Acoustics - Determination of sound power levels of noise sources using sound pressure - Comparison method in situ
Original title Acoustique - Détermination des niveaux de puissance acoustique émis par les sources de bruit à partir de la pression acoustique - Méthode de comparaison in situ [in French]
Bibliographic information International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Case postale 56, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, 2nd ed., July 2000. v, 18p. Illus. 16 ref.
Abstract This international standard is one of the ISO 3740 series, which, together with ISO 9614, specifies various methods for determining sound power levels of machines, equipment and sub-assemblies. When selecting one of the methods of the 3740 series, it is necessary to decide which one is most appropriate for the conditions and purposes of the test. General guidelines to assist in the selection are provided in ISO 3740. The present standard specifies a method for determining the sound power levels of sound sources in situ, and is especially applicable to non-movable machines and equipment.
