Abstract

Presents the main results of completed and on-going research, mainly by the author and his colleagues, into factory sound fields. The important factors influencing the sound propagation and the reverberation time in factories are discussed. In particular, the obstacle effect resulting from the presence of fittings, and influences of enclosure shape and construction, are elucidated. Methods for predicting factory sound fields are reviewed and evaluated
