About this book


This book examines the physical background of engineering acoustics, focusing on empirically obtained engineering experience as well as on measurement techniques and engineering methods for prognostics. Its goal is not only to describe the state of art of engineering acoustics but also to give practical help to engineers in order to solve acoustic problems. It deals with the origin, the transmission and the methods of the abating different kinds of air-borne and structure-borne sounds caused by various mechanisms – from traffic to machinery and flow-induced sound. In addition the modern aspects of room and building acoustics, as well as psychoacoustics and active noise control, are covered.

From the reviews:

“Topics are presented with a balance of theory and applications whenever feasible, and illustrations and graphs are of great assistance to the reader. … reading the Handbook of Engineering Acoustics was akin to listening a great orchestral performance in a fine hall. Maestros Müller and Möser did assemble a cast of expert performers and have created a work of reference that is bound to become a standard for others to meet.” (Dominique J. Chéenne, Noise Control Engineering Journal, Vol. 61 (3), May-June, 2013)
