Index.

Over 30% new or revised material from the previous edition including updates on the standards, HVAC noise, and chapters on active noise and vibration control.

"Some things get better with age, e.g. women, wine and pea soup. This is also true here. Each new book in this 'series' of books started by Leo Beranek in 1960 and continued with help from Istvan Ver has gotten better. They all maintain a depth that is not available in many of the other books available on noise control. This book has a excellent balance of practical and therefore useful guidelines and theoretical modeling with equations and data to support and permit easy extension of the guidelines to most of the situations faced by noise control engineers. In general, one will not be buried in math that does not lead to meaningful help for noise control engineers looking for solutions to real problems. Anyone serious about noise control should have this book available, even if you are like me and have the other three proceeding books in this 'series'."

Provides broad coverage of both principles and applications for engineers and designers.
