On the basis of the impulse diagrams of various weapons and many audiometric tests, the CHABA impulse-noise damage-risk criteria (DRC) are compared with those of the Federal Republic of Germany. Both DRC indicate maximum permissible exposures in terms of peak-pressure level and of effective duration. Both DRC aim to protect 95% of the exposed population from permanent auditory damage. The computation of the effective duration differs between the CHABA DRC and the German DRC, and it generally… CONTINUE READING
