"A new 1,page reference book, "Handbook of Noise and Vibration Control," intended to be the definitive source on noise and vibration control for engineers, scientists, and researchers. The new reference book addresses a range of topics in acoustics and vibration, focusing on industrial needs." (Airport Noise Report; 11/2/07)5/5(1). Noise and vibration control is one largest areas of application of the acoustics topics covered in the successful encyclopedia and handbook. It is also an area that has been under-published in recent years. Crocker has positioned this reference to cover the gamut of topics while focusing more on the applications to industrial needs. water ﬂow, and including vibration isolation mounts. Obviously, the noise treatment must not interfere with the operation of the applicance or machine. This stipulation places limitations on the noise control procedure that can be used. In many instances, the quieter product can function as well as the. Chapter 16 Prediction of Machinery Noise (pages –): Eric W. Wood and James D. Barnes Chapter 17 Noise Control in Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning Systems (pages –): Alan T. Fry and Douglas H. Sturz Chapter 18 Active Control of Noise and Vibration (pages –): Ronald Coleman and Paul J. Remington.
Crocker's new handbook covers an area of great importance to engineers and designers. Noise and vibration control is one largest areas of application of the acoustics topics covered in the successful encyclopedia and handbook. It is also an area that has been under-published in recent years. Noise and Vibration Control Engineering: Principles and Applications, Second Edition is the updated revision of the classic reference containing the most important noise control design information in a single volume of manageable size. They all maintain a depth that is not available in many of the other books available on noise control. This chapter deals with the effects of noise and vibration on human performance and comfort. From an engineering design perspective, noise and vibration are close cousins; vibration of a steel plate will cause noise. Many engineering measures that reduce vibration will also cut noise. Noise transmission pathways and personal hearing protection will also need to be considered. Hierarchy of noise control. OSH professionals use the hierarchy of control to determine how to implement practical and effective risk management programmes to tackle noise-related issues in the workplace.
"A new 1,page reference book, "Handbook of Noise and Vibration Control," intended to be the definitive source on noise and vibration control for engineers, scientists, and researchers. The new reference book addresses a range of topics in acoustics and vibration, focusing on industrial needs.". This article reviews Handbook of Noise and Vibration Control by Malcolm J. Crocker, New Jersey, pp. Price: $ (hardcover) ISBN: Noise and Vibration Control Engineering: Principles and Applications looks to be a good source for a second book on noise control. By second book I mean a follow up to a good introductory book on Architectural Acoustics by Egan, Long, or Mehta et al. Long's book is very thourough. Each Chapter is written by a recognized expert in the s: The book presents a collection of articles on novel approaches to problems of current interest in vibration control by academicians, researchers, and practicing engineers from all over the world. The book is divided into eight chapters and encompasses multidisciplinary areas within the scope of noise and vibration engineering, such as structural dynamics, structural mechanics, finite element.
