The first edition of Sound and Structural Vibration was written in the early 1980s. Since then, two major developments have taken place in the field of vibroacoustics. Powerful computational methods and procedures for the numerical analysis of structural vibration, acoustical fields and acoustical interactions between fluids and structures have been developed and these are now universally employed by researchers, consultants and industrial organisations. Advances in signal processing systems and algorithms, in transducers, and in structural materials and forms of construction, have facilitated the development of practical means of applying active and adaptive control systems to structures for the purposes of reducing or modifying structural vibration and the associated sound radiation and transmission.
In this greatly expanded and extensively revised edition, the authors have retained most of the analytically based material that forms the pedagogical content of the first edition, and have expanded it to present the theoretical foundations of modern numerical analysis. Application of the latter is illustrated by examples that have been chosen to complement the analytical approaches to solving fairly simple problems of sound radiation, transmission and fluid-structural coupling that are presented in the first edition. The number of examples of experimental data that relate to the theoretical content, and illustrate important features of vibroacoustic interaction, has been augmented by the inclusion of a selection from the vast amount of material published during the past twenty five years. The final chapter on the active control of sound and vibration has no precursor in the first edition.

Extensively revised; now covering the fundamental aspects and modern developments in vibroacousticsFrom the Back Cover:
The various phenomena associated with wave motion in solid structures, and its coupling to surrounding fluids, are of central importance to the engineer concerned with sound radiation from vibrating structures, sound transmission across partitions, and the response of structures to sound, processes which are of great practical concern in noise control. This advanced textbook presents a unified approach to the analysis of audio-frequency vibration in coupled solid-fluid systems in which the role of waves in both media is emphasized.
The book is primarily intended to instruct the reader in theoretical approaches to the modelling and analysis of fluid structure interactions; but, in order to cater for the less mathematically inclined student, it provides extensive physical explanations of their dependence upon the parameters of the coupled systems. Numerous examples of the behaviour of practical systems are presented and, to aid self study, worked solutions are provided for the questions which follow each chapter. Over 100 source references are provided for further reading.
