Publisher Comments:

Authoritative guidance for controlling noise and vibration

In today's competitive marketplace, noise and vibration control have become very important in the design of many products, from automobiles to aircraft to consumer appliances. Providing broad coverage of both principles and applications that engineers and designers must know, Noise and Vibration Control Engineering: Principles and Applications, Second Edition is a complete resource of critical noise control design information in one concise and manageable volume.

Presenting the latest information on commonly found noise and vibration problems, this Second Edition has been thoroughly updated and reviewed by István Vér and Leo Beranek, who compiled new as well as fully revised chapters on the latest developments in the field, written by some of the top acoustic engineers and scientists in the world. New material covers:

  • Noise generation
  • HVAC systems
  • Active noise and vibration control
  • Sound absorbing materials and structures
  • Outdoor noise propagation
  • Criteria for noise control in buildings
  • Passive silencers
  • Acoustical standards
  • And much more!

Synopsis:

Noise and Vibration Control Engineering: Principles and Applications, Second Edition is the updated revision of the classic reference containing the most important noise control design information in a single volume of manageable size. Specific content updates include completely revised material on noise and vibration standards, updated information on active noise/vibration control, and the applications of these topics to heating, ventilating, and air conditioning.
