Engineering Noise Control Theory and practice 4th edition by David A. Bies and Colin H. Hansen pdf free download

Engineering Noise Control Theory and practice 4th edition by David A. Bies and Colin H. Hansen pdf free download. Although this fourth edition follows the same basic style and format as the first, second and third editions, the content has been considerably updated and expanded, yet again. This is partly in response to significant advances in the practice of acoustics and in the associated technology during the six years since the third edition and partly in response to improvements, corrections, suggestions and queries raised by various practitioners and students. The major additions are outlined below.

However, there are many other minor additions and corrections that have been made to the text but which are not specifically identified here. The emphasis of this edition is purely on passive means of noise control and the chapter on active noise control that appeared in the second and third editions has been replaced with a chapter on practical numerical acoustics, where it is shown how free, open source software can be used to solve some difficult acoustics problems, which are too complex for theoretical analysis.

The removal of Chapter 12 on active noise control is partly due to lack of space and partly because a more comprehensive and a more useful treatment is available in the book, Understanding Active Noise Cancellation by Colin H. Hansen. Chapter 1 includes updated material on the speed of sound in compliant ducts and the entire section on speed of sound has been rewritten with a more unified treatment of solids, liquids and gases. Chapter 2 has been updated to include some recent discoveries regarding the mechanism of hearing damage. Chapter 3 has been considerably updated and expanded to include a discussion of expected measurement precision and errors using the various forms of instrumentation, as well as a discussion of more advanced instrumentation for noise source localisation using near field acoustic holography and beamforming.

The discussion on spectrum analysers and recording equipment has been completely rewritten to reflect more modern instrumentation. In Chapter 4, the section on evaluation of environmental noise has been updated and rewritten. Additions in Chapter 5 include a better definition of incoming solar radiation for enabling the excess attenuation due to meteorological influences to be determined. Many parts of Section 5.11 on outdoor sound propagation have been rewritten in an attempt to clarify some ambiguities in the third edition.
