About this book

Introduction

This book, with its use of examples and case studies, provides a good basic introduction to the acoustics of noise control, a subject increasingly important in our ever noisier world.' J.A.S.Angus, Times Higher Education Supplement An understanding of acoustics and noise control is of increasing importance to the professional engineer. This book describes the basic theory of sound together with its application and measurement, theory which is illustrated throughout with the use of numerous examples. Other key subjects such as noise control are covered, together with more advanced topics not usually covered in acoustics texts, such as modern noise measurement equipment, digital methods of spectrum analysis, and systematic strategies of noise control.
