This paper presents design stage methods to analyze centrifugal compressor station piping acoustically. The methods have been successfully applied to the design of 26 stations since 1988. Full details of the calculation procedures are given, as well as guidelines for interpreting predicted results. Finally, the relationships between acoustic and mechanical response are described.
