Abstract
This thesis examined and analyzed the Navy Military Housing acoustical design practices and procedures for military residential housing. The Uniform Building Code and Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFACENGCOM) instruction 11101.85 were used as base line guidance for design and construction of Navy Family Housing Projects. NAVFACTENGCOM's design process was first examined to determine if more emphasis should be placed on noise suppression in Navy Family Housing. Based on the analysis, it was determined that the Navy Family Housing Program does address the design for noise suppression through the use of pre-established and factory tested Sound Transmission Class (STC) assemblies. However more emphasis should be placed on the acoustic evaluation process after a contractors' design is received for evaluation.
