Abstract
This manual contains fundamental information to aid the user in understanding, measuring, and controlling noise. It was written for persons having little or no experience in solving noise control problems, realizing that a large number of businesses are not prepared to deal with their noise problems effectively. There are seven chapters in the manual covering the following subjects: fundamental principles of sound, noise measurement, noise control techniques, noise control materials, case histories of successful applications of noise control methods in actual industrial situations, how to choose a qualified consultant, and references to additional pertinent literature. The manual should be used as a guide to help the reader develop solutions to his particular noise problems using proven methods.
