Abstract Proceedings of the 11th National Conference on Noise Control Engineering held in New York, USA, 14-16 July 1991. Topics covered: history of noise control; practical use of acoustical technology; perception of noisiness; acoustics and product design; noise sources (gear noise, fan noise, noise from a computer disk drive); noise control by external treatments (gas turbine exhaust system silencing, sound-absorbing structures, hearing protector performance, applications of active noise control); generation, transmission, isolation and reduction of vibration and shock; physical aspects of environmental noise (noise levels in offices, electric utility environmental noise, noise from rotary coal car unloading operations); effects of noise (binaural measurement techniques, loudness prediction); noise measurement techniques and analytical methods.
