Gain a deep understanding of a vessel’s noise signature to enable customer satisfaction and compliance

Reduce vessel noise emissions using comprehensive noise source analysis.

As part of the push to make the marine industry more sustainable, shipbuilders and shipyards are facing increasing pressure to reduce noise pollution in order to protect marine wildlife and public health. Adhering to the on-board noise compliance with safe working conditions legislation is mandatory for commercial vessels while reducing underwater noise is one of the top targets for naval shipbuilders.

Commercial vessels and naval ships contain various noise sources. Several factors contribute to their high noise levels, including onboard machinery, powertrains and cavitation. In addition, the complex ship structure provides additional paths for the noise and vibrations to travel, multiply and propagate through the hull and into the water. Considering that sound propagates 4.5 times faster in water than in air, underwater noise can significantly impact local fauna and potentially threaten marine ecosystems. As a result, reducing vessel noise emissions has become a complex engineering challenge that demands a holistic approach from the early design stages. Ship design teams require proper engineering tools, including simulation and measurement, to tackle noise performance challenges from different perspectives.

Join this webinar to explore various engineering tools and approaches to model and test a vessel’s radiated noise.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Quantify and trace noise sources to understand their routes and distribution
  • Leverage acoustic, mechanical simulation to master structure- and air-borne noise
  • Apply CFD simulations to effectively reduce underwater noise caused by cavitation
  • Localize noise sources and build a detailed source map to enable further improvements
