Engineering Noise Control – Bies & Hansen – 3rd Edition

The third edition of Control has been thoroughly revised, updated and extended. Each chapter contains new material, much of which is not available elsewhere. The result is a comprehensive discussion of the theoretical principles and concepts of acoustics and noise control, a detailed discussion of the hearing mechanism, noise measuring instrumentation and techniques, noise criteria, sound source characterization and emission, outdoor sound propagation, sound in rooms, sound transmission through partitions, enclosure design, dissipative and reactive mufflers, isolation, equipment sound power emission calculations and active noise cancellation.

The is an excellent text for undergraduate or graduate students of acoustic and noise control, and it also contains essential and prediction techniques that make it an invaluable resource for the practitioner.
