Noise Control in the Automotive Industry: Some Practical Experience
AbstractThe General Motors Transmission Plant in Windsor, Ontario is presently undergoing a large-scale expansion program. This program has included a commitment by management to meet all appropriate sound and vibration criteria related to in-plant, office and environmental acoustics. The consequence of this decision is that substantial expenditures will be allocated for noise and vibration control. The following paper presents some aspects of a noise and vibration control program generated to ensure adequate control of cost and performance of the acoustical materials and hardware being considered. Also discussed are methods developed to deal with the practical problems of meeting acoustical design targets in a major industrial plant and results obtained to date.
