In this overall review of gas-turbine sound and its control, the author discusses the variety of installations, the scope of the noise control problem, criteria, industry performance, noise specifications, and noise measurements. In particular, the magnitude of the noise control problem is indicated by discussion of the sound of an unmuffled 20 Mw turbine. Typical sound pressure level data on current installations are given, and suggestions are made for noise control criteria in the low frequency range.
