Marine Technical Assistance - Noise and Vibration

Early identification of noise and vibration issues can avoid costly solutions later

Business Challenge

Shipbuilders and ship owners are looking to limit noise and vibration on ships as much as possible. 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 initial stages of parts design and manufacture. However, this is not always possible and initiatives to improve noise and vibration levels are sometimes necessary.

Solution

What kind of measurements do we provide? Bureau Veritas is able to perform a complete set of studies and measurements on board ship, in order to limit noise and vibration problems before building and to reduce as far as possible noise and vibration nuisance on existing ships. The areas covered are:

  • Noise: prediction studies and measurements in situ.

  • Vibration: dynamic calculations, excitation tests during outfitting work, operational modal analysis,measurements, monitoring…

  • Strain: FEM calculations, static and dynamic stress measurements, deformation measurementson various structures (ship hull, pipes, cranes…), torsional vibration and propulsion powermeasurement, bending moments…
