out being reliable. The book, Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (), provides guidance for all phases of test development. 2. The Four Types of Reliability a. Test-Retest reliability (also called Stability) answers the question, “Will the scores be stable over time.” A test or measure is administered. SomeFile Size: KB. Furthermore, ship noise was observed to radiate asymmetrically. Stern aspect noise levels are 5 to 10 dB higher than bow aspect noise levels. Collectively, these results emphasize the importance of including modern ship-types in quantifying shipping noise for predictive models of global, regional, and local marine environ-ments.

Example problems are used throughout to relate the basic laws of acoustics to practical applications. The book illustrates the uses of personal computers to evaluate noise problems and noise control techniques. Interpretation of data from measurements and theoretical predictions are emphasized, and alternative noise control techniques are by: noise sources. Ship propulsion, machinery in ships and off-shore installations, off-shore construction activities all produce unnecessary sound as an incidental by-product. The noise levels generated in air and underwater may be excessive in terms of crew and passenger safety or comfort. The noise may injure or disturb marine life in the.

Controlling noise is therefore a defense measure, most acutely for submarines. Prevention. At the design table, the naval architect makes the necessary choices concerning the ship's structure to achieve an optimized design towards noise and vibration control. Decisions are made about the engine and shaft, what kind of instruments and material.   1. Measures of Variability MARY KRYSTLE DAWN D. SULLEZA Reporter CHAPTER FOUR: 2. VARIABILITY: the “spread” in a set of measurement. -it refers to how spread out a group of data is. In other words, variability measures how much your scores differ from each other. Variability is also referred to as dispersion or g: ship noise.

Variability of underwater radiated ship noise measured using two hydrophone arrays Abstract: The impacts of man-made underwater noise on the marine environment have received increased attention over recent years, primarily resulting from recognition of the increased pressures placed on the oceans by human by: 2.

evidence provides important findings. Critically, very significant variability exists in real underwater noise performance and the related vibrations when compared to median measurements and fixed targets. Technical and cost implications of this observation should be considered by initial ship designs or update programmes.

Measurement of radiated ship noise. A methodology is presented for measuring the radiated noise from a ship in shallow water, and deriving the source level spectrum. The method is applied to the measurement of dredgers in UK waters, vessels which are restricted to shallow water during aggregate extraction.

ship noise measurements have been addressed and limits to the radiated noise have been de- veloped in order to reduce the shipping impact on the marine fauna.

The most common measurement in environmental noise is the dB(A) level. It can be measured with a simple Sound Level Meter having an A-weighting filter to simulate the subjective response of the human ear.

The schematic drawing of the measurement system was shown in the earlier paper “Tracking the Underwater Noise Source Using a Vector Sound-Intensity Probe” [1].

The noise radiated by ship is always measured by running this ship past a stationary. World War II studies of ship noise, particularly measurements of thousands of transits of hundreds of ships of all types, identified propeller cavitation as the dominant source of noise radiated by ships, including at high frequencies (Dow, Emling & Knudsen, ).

Noise was monitored on a duty cycle of 1 min every 10 min at a sampling rate of kHz and 16 bits.

The recommended test sequence is shown in Fig. 2 for the measurement of radiated noise from the starboard side of the vessel.
