DESCRIPTION

BS EN ISO 17201-1:2018


This standard BS EN ISO 17201-1:2018 Acoustics. Noise from shooting ranges is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 17.140.20 Noise emitted by machines and equipment
  • 17.040.20 Properties of surfaces
  • 95.020 Military engineering. Military affairs. Weapons
  • 97.220.10 Sports facilities

This document specifies a method to determine the acoustic source energy of the muzzle blast for calibres of less than 20 mm or explosive charges of less than 50 g TNT equivalent. It is applicable at distances where peak pressures less than 1 kPa (equivalent to a peak sound pressure level of 154 dB) are observed. The source energy, directivity of the source and their spectral structure determined by this procedure can be used as input data to sound propagation programmes, enabling the prediction of shooting noise in the neighbourhood of shooting ranges. Additionally, the data can be used to compare sound emission from different types of guns or different types of ammunition used with the same gun.

This document is applicable to guns used in civil shooting ranges but it can also be applied to military guns. It is not applicable to the assessment of hearing damage or sound levels in the non-linear region.

Suppressors and silencers are not taken into consideration in this document.
