This Week’s Newly Reaffirmed Standards

We’re delighted to announce this set of newly reaffirmed (2023) ASA Standards:

ASC S2 Committee:

ASA/ANSI S2.29-2003 (R2023)
Guide for the Measurement and Evaluation of Vibration of Machine Shafts on Shipboard Machinery

This standard contains procedures for the measurement and evaluation of the mechanical vibration of non-reciprocating machines, as measured on rotating shafts. It contains criteria for evaluating new machines and for vibration monitoring. This American National Standard is related to the various parts of the ISO 7919 series that provides guidelines for the evaluation of different types of machines. The type of machinery covered in this part is shipboard machinery. This is a new ANSI standard, and there is, at present, no International Standards Organization version of this standard.

ASC S12 Committee:

ASA/ANSI S12.9-2013/Part 3 (R2023)
Quantities and Procedures for Description and Measurement of Environmental Sound – Part 3: Short-term Measurements with an Observer Present

This standard is the third in a series of parts concerning description and measurement of outdoor environmental sound. The standard describes recommended procedures for measurement of short-term, time-average environmental sound outdoors at one or more locations in a community for environmental assessment or planning for compatible land uses and for other purposes such as demonstrating compliance with a regulation. These measurements are distinguished by the requirement to have an observer present. Sound may be produced by one or more separate, distributed sources of sound such as a highway, factory, or airport. Methods are given to correct the measured levels for the influence of background sound.

ASA/ANSI S12.55-2012 / ISO 3745:2012 (R2023)
Acoustics – Determination of sound power levels and sound energy levels of noise sources using sound pressure – Precision methods for anechoic rooms and hemi-anechoic rooms

This American National Standard specifies methods for measuring the sound pressure levels on a measurement surface enveloping a noise source (machinery or equipment) in an anechoic room or a hemi-anechoic room. The sound power level (or, in the case of impulsive or transient noise emission, the sound energy level) produced by the noise source, in frequency bands of width one-third octave or with frequency weighting A applied, is calculated using those measurements, including corrections to allow for any differences between the meteorological conditions at the time and place of the test and those corresponding to a reference characteristic acoustic impedance.
