This book addresses the prediction and control of noise and vibration in ventilation systems and their psychoacoustic effects on people. The content is based on the authors’ research and lecture material on building acoustics and provides insights into the development of prediction methods and control of noise and vibration from ventilation systems, and an assessment of their psychological effects on people.
The basic principles and methods for prediction and control of noise and vibration from ventilation systems are discussed, including the latest developments on flow-generated noise prediction, assessment methods for the performance of vibration isolation, noise control using periodic Helmholtz Resonators, and holistic psychoacoustic assessment of noise from ventilation systems.
- The insightful book on noise and vibration in ventilation systems
- Extends into prediction, control, and psychoacoustic assessment methods
The book suits graduate students and engineers in acoustics and noise and vibration control, as well as in building services engineering and across the built environment.
