Abstract

This project aims to incorporate airborne noise & vibration control in the overall ship design and construction process to improve the noise & vibration environment on all vessels while reducing the associated adverse impacts on space, weight, m The proposed solution is a computerized noise prediction tool which will involve a new integration of currently separate acoustic analysis methods and development of new data interface technology capable of semi-automatically building a ship acoustic desi Phase I will identify the component parts needed to meet Navy specifications; it will establish technical feasibility and will generate a Functional Specification document for implementation in software in Phase II.
