Abstract
The noise generating mechanisms which occur in industrial machinery are discussed with respect to the types of machinery, processes and systems of noise generation, transmission paths and radiators. Noise sources can be classed as power generating units, fluid control systems, process equipment, atmospheric inlets and discharges, materials handling, and plant traffic. The response of people to noise in the community and the methods for delineating or comparing community noise levels are discussed. Methods of reducing industrial noise in the community and the outlook for future needs and methods for noise control are presented.
