Estimating community noise in a standard way: A discussion about and the status of ISO 9613-2

Richard J. Peppin


The ISO 9613-2 standard for acoustic noise estimation is discussed. The standard is the collection of algorithms that can be used with hand calculations or computer programs. The method described in the standard can be applied to a wide variety of noise sources. This standard specifies an engineering method for calculating the sound attenuation produced by different sound sources.
