Modern noise research and assessment techniques are commonly used in the workplace and our personal living environment. Occupational Noise and Workplace Acoustics presents new, innovative, advanced research and evaluation methods of parameters characterising acoustic field and noise in the working environment, as well as acoustic properties of rooms and noise reduction measures. This includes acoustic field visualisation methods, field imaging techniques, wireless sensor networks and the Internet of Things (IoT), optimisation methods using genetic algorithms, acoustic quality assessment methods for rooms and methods for measuring ultrasonic noise in the frequency range of 10-40kHz. This book is a valuable resource for individuals and students interested in the areas of acoustic and sound engineering. As it provides the latest techniques and methods in the field of noise reduction and improvement of acoustic comfort.
