Noise and Vibration Control

Noise and Vibration Control

This course presents a general approach to designing and implementing noise control measures for mechanical equipment spaces. It provides recommendations for mechanical equipment installations, including specifications, testing methods, and applicable standards. The course provides a method of analysis to mitigate noise in neighborhoods adjacent to mechanical equipment installations.

Noise level estimates have been derived for various types of mechanical equipment, and in some cases graded for power or speed variations of the noise-producing machines. The noise level estimates are conservative and should result in noise control designs that will adequately “protect” approximately 80 to 90 percent of all equipment.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of sixty (60) questions to earn 12 PDH credit.
