Noise and vibration affect engineering structures of all kinds. This textbook provides students with a unified treatment of engineering noise and vibration analysis and control. The main feature of the book is the bringing together of vibration and noise within a single volume rather than treating each topic in isolation. Particular emphasis is placed on the wave-mode duality and the interactions between sound waves and solid structures. The book is primarily intended as a textbook for undergraduates in the final year of an engineering course. Postgraduates and professionals will also find that it is a useful overview of the field. There are specific case studies, test cases, and examples for students to work through.

In this second edition, Michael Norton's classic text has been extensively updated to take into account the latest developments in the field. The book treats both noise and vibration in a single volume, with particular emphasis on wave-mode duality and interactions between sound waves and solid structures. This is primarily a textbook for senior level undergraduate and graduate courses, but will also be a valuable reference for researchers and practicing engineers.About the Author:
Michael P. Norton is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at the University of Western Australia, the Director of the Centre for Acoustics, Dynamics and Vibration at that University, and a Foundation Director of SVT - Engineering Consultants.
