Identifying Noise and Vibration Issues Early to Avoid Costly Problems Later
Shipbuilders and ship owners are looking to limit noise and vibration as much as possible on ships. This is particularly important on passenger vessels. Ideally, potential problems should be identified at the earliest stages of ship design and shipbuilding, as well as in the earliest stages of part design and manufacture. However, this is not always possible and solutions are therefore also needed for operating vessels.
What kind of measurements do we provide?
Bureau Veritas is able to perform a complete set of measurements on board a ship, in order to avoid noise and vibration problems before building, and to reduce vibrations on existing ships.
The areas covered are:
- Noise: Prediction studies and measurements.
- Vibrations: Excitation tests during outfitting work, operational modal analysis, measurements and monitoring.
What are the key benefits?
- Address potentially excessive noise and vibrations before shipbuilding is complete.
- Achieve acceptable noise and vibration levels required for class notation.
- Optimise comfort for passengers and crew.
- Identify unusual noise or vibrations that need to be addressed during ship operation.
