This text covers the acoustical theory necessary to the practice of noise control. Example problems are used throughout to relate the basic laws of acoustics to practical applications. The book illustrates the uses of personal computers to evaluate noise problems and noise control techniques. Interpretation of data from measurements and theoretical predictions are emphasized, and alternative noise control techniques are examined. Real-world problems and case studies are used. Special features of this book are PC use integrated with noise control theory and practice; vector sound intensity and modal analysis; prediction methods for environmental impact, industrial noise, transportation noise; up-to-date OSHA, EPA and transportation noise standards and methods. A solutions manual is available to qualified instructors.
