Noise testing is conducted to determine if materials can withstand external noises generated by various sources. It also includes air-borne and structure-borne noise measurements.


The test is performed to demonstrate the adequacy of material to resist the external acoustic environment in which it is installed without degradation of its functional performance and structural integrity.

Acoustic noise testing is specified in the following:

MIL-STD-810, MIL-S-3928, MIL-F-7872, MIL-A-8064, MIL-F-8615, MIL-A-8870, MIL-T-15514, MIL-F-16377, MIL-I-11867, MIL-F-16377, MIL-T-17293, MIL-T-17301, MIL-V-17639, MIL-P-17869, MIL-P-18472, MIL-F-18870, MIL-F-19004, MIL-C-19113, MIL-C-23200, MIL-V-24509, MIL-F-24755, MIL-T-28800, ASTM C423-66, ANSI S1.26-1978, ANSI S1.31-1980, ANSI S1.32-1980, ANSI S1.33-1980, ASTM C423-66
