Revision of E2963-16 Standard Test Method for Laboratory Measurement of Acoustical Effectiveness of Ship Noise Treatments Laboratory Measurement of Acoustical Effectiveness for Marine Bulkhead and Deck Treatments


None Provided


The modification that is being proposed is to remove the information in Appendix X.2 relating to an alternative method to assess the damping loss factors of a treated structure. Instead, the use of ASTM E756 is encouraged for any treatment that relies on an increase in damping to provide noise reductions.
