Module overview

Noise control engineering is concerned with the application of basic acoustics and vibration theory to reduce noise in practical situations. The noise control engineer needs to know how to set targets, how to characterise and quantify noise sources, and how to reduce noise either at source or, more commonly, in the transmission path. Suitable formulae are provided and explained for each of these steps. The main assessment consists of a design calculation study which makes use of these formulae to solve a practical problem. The report is written in a form suitable for a client.
