In order to obtain permission for the construction of a new gas compressor station or other industrial facility, the future user has to submit a comprehensive forecast of sound immission levels to the competent supervisory authority, at the same time demonstrating by which means the noise level requirements in the vicinity of the facility can be met.

For this purpose, it is essential to calculate the sound propagation and associated attenuation effects on a basis which is reliable, verifiable and acceptable to the authority. The German VDI Regulations No. 2714 contain stipulations regarding standardized calculation procedures applicable in such cases.

This paper (ASME-presentation) discusses these calculation procedures for distances of > 200 m (> 650 feet) with special emphasis on screening and attenuation effects attributable to topography, weather influences and sound dissipation at high frequencies.
