ESDU Noise in Nuclear Facilities
Methods on the propagation and suppression of noise in nuclear facilities are provided. Noise reduction in flow ducts, shielding by barriers, atmospheric attenuation, ground reflection, and wind and temperature effects are covered. Although primarily aimed at the aerospace industry, these methods can estimate noise attenuation from various sources in nuclear facilities.
This Collection contains the following information.
The acoustic attenuation of absorbent linings in cylindrical flow ducts.
The acoustic attenuation of absorbent linings in rectangular flow ducts with application to annular flow ducts.
Far-field sound radiation from circular ducts.
Evaluation of the attenuation of sound by a uniform atmosphere.
Evaluation of the attenuation of broad-band sound by a non-uniform still atmosphere.
Prediction of sound attenuation in a refracting turbulent atmosphere with a Fast Field Program.
