L00280 Noise Abatement Volume III - Blow-off Noise Suppression and Regulator Valve Noise Generation
Research Contractor
Release Date:
01/01/1961
Catalog No:
L00280

The first section of this report contains techniques for designing silencers to suppress the noise produced during high pressure gas blow-offs. Both complex analytical techniques and simplified design charts are presented; the charts allow users to design silencers based desired noise reduction, pipeline pressure, and blow-off size. The second section of the report discusses the noise generation characteristics of regulator waves.
