Noise calculation for regulators

Post by baumnog » Mon Jun 06, 2011 11:39 pm

What is the formula to calculate the produced noise in a regulator? I have a 16" American Axial flow valve with a load of 710 MCFH. Max inlet pressure of 150psig, min inlet pressure 75 psig. Delivery system MAOP 3.42 psig.
I have calculated the velocity to be 88 ft/s.

How does one calulate the noise produced?
