About This Book


A masterful introduction to the theory of acoustics along with methods for the control of noise and vibration

In Engineering Acoustics: Noise and Vibration Control, two experts in the field review the fundamentals of acoustics, noise, and vibration. The authors show how this theoretical work can be applied to real-world problems such as the control of noise and vibration in aircraft, automobiles and trucks, machinery, and road and rail vehicles.

Engineering Acoustics: Noise and Vibration Control covers a wide range of topics.

The sixteen chapters include the following:

  • Human hearing and individual and community response to noise and vibration
  • Noise and vibration instrumentation and measurements
  • Interior and exterior noise of aircraft as well as road and rail vehicles
  • Methods for the control of noise and vibration in industrial equipment and machinery
  • Use of theoretical models in absorptive and reactive muffler and silencer designs
  • Practical applications of finite element, boundary element and statistical energy analysis
  • Sound intensity theory, measurements, and applications
  • Noise and vibration control in buildings
  • How to design air-conditioning systems to minimize noise and vibration

Readers, whether students, professional engineers, or community planners, will find numerous worked examples throughout the book, and useful references at the end of each chapter to support supplemental reading on specific topics. There is a detailed index and a glossary of terms in acoustics, noise, and vibration.
