Fundamentals of Noise and Vibration
Noise is a ubiquitous industrial pollutant whose impact on urban and rural society worldwide is considerable. Noise and vibration are now major factors in determining the marketability and competitiveness of a wide range of manufacturers'' products from washing machines to cars and aircraft.
Controlling noise and vibration effectively at source demands highly-skilled engineers. Concerns about the effects of noise and vibration on the human environment have led to the formulation of exposure standards for environmental noise and vibration and there is a need for specialists with detailed understanding of the environmental and human effects of noise and vibration, as well as for legislators and administrators with a basic understanding of acoustics.
Fundamentals of Noise and Vibration is based on the first semester of the postgraduate master''s course in Sound '' and Vibration Studies'' at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, at the University of Southampton. The main objective of the course is to provide students with the skills and knowledge required to practise in the field of noise and vibration control technology.
Readers do not need prior formal training in acoustics, although a basic understanding of mechanics, fluid dynamics and applied mathematics is required. Many of the chapters use examples of models and forms of analysis to illustrate the principles that they introduce.
By pointing toward the practical application of these fundamental principles and methods, the book will benefit those wishing to extend their knowledge and understanding of acoustic and vibration technology for professional purposes.
A companion volume, Advanced Topics in Noise and Vibration will follow.
