Resum

A common problem for large factories that wish to decrease their environmental acoustic impact on neighbouring locations is to find out the acoustic power of every noise source. As these factories cannot stop their activity in order to measure each source individually, a procedure is needed to obtain the acoustic powers with the factory under normal operating conditions. Their contribution to the overall sound pressure level at each neighbouring location can then be found and it is possible to calculate the improvements obtained after any modification of the sources. In this paper an inversion modelling method is used to do so. Acoustic powers are obtained by means of field sound pressure level measurements and with the use of a sound propagation software. A careful analysis of the solution has been carried out by simulating errors on the measured data in order to detect possible correlations between the acoustic power of different sources and avoid misleading interpretations of the results. The whole methodology has been applied to a liquid-gas production factory.
