This textbook comprehensively reviews the theory and practice in assessment of transportation noise problems at a level geared to the needs of practicing acousticians and transportation engineers. Starting from a traditional source-path-receiver analysis of sound, the author develops these concepts in relation to today's major transportation noise sources-aircraft, sonic boom, automobiles, trucks, and rail vehicles. This book is designed to be a self-study introduction to a field of growing importance, a textbook at the level of college seniors or graduate students, or a source book of data and engineering formulae for the practicing professional. Along with outdoor sound and sonic boom, propagation, interior noise in aircraft cabins, automobiles, trucks, and rail transit vehicles, and transmission into rooms and buildings are treated.
