Abstract Proceedings of an international conference on noise control engineering, held in Newport Beach, California, USA, 4-6 December 1989. Papers are grouped under the following headings: noise emission sources (sound generation mechanisms and noise levels for various types of machines and equipment); physical phenomena (noise tests, sound propagation measurement); noise control elements (acoustic barriers, absorptive materials, mufflers, silencers, active noise control); generation, transmission, isolation and reduction of vibration and shock; physical aspects of environmental noise (noise prediction and control in buildings, airports, road transport and concert halls); effects of noise (loudness evaluation, low frequency sound, noise nuisance from road traffic and aircraft); analysis (noise measurement equipment and techniques); requirements (legislation, standards, exposure levels).
Descriptors (primary) noise control; vibration control
Descriptors (secondary) USA; sound transmission; noise level; noisiness; sound propagation; aircraft; vibration damage risk criteria; sound absorption; silencers; sound shielding; road transport; noise dosimetry; legislation; noise level measurement; conference; low-frequency noise
