By David A. Bies

The perform of engineering noise keep watch over calls for an excellent knowing of the basics of acoustics, the sensible software of present noise regulate know-how and the underlying theoretical thoughts. This absolutely revised and up-to-date fourth version presents a finished clarification of those key components truly, but with out oversimplification. Written by means of specialists of their box, the sensible concentration echoes advances within the self-discipline, mirrored within the fourth edition’s new fabric, including:

  • completely up-to-date insurance of sound transmission loss, mufflers and exhaust stack directivity
  • a new bankruptcy on functional numerical acoustics
  • thorough rationalization of the newest tools for measurements and analysis.

Essential interpreting for complex scholars or these already good versed within the artwork and technology of noise regulate, this specified textual content can be utilized to unravel actual international difficulties encountered via noise and vibration experts in addition to engineers and occupational hygienists.
