This guide to the causes and effects of noise and vibration generation by the transportation industry was really more complete than I thought it would be at first glance. Along with the expected aspects of acoustic scales/ratings and the specific hows and whys of how noise is created by each method of transportation, it also covers the community and medical aspects of transportation noise, including the effects of noise on sleeping patterns.
This book also includes methods of controlling noise and vibration, pertinent legislation, and how to predict the level of noise for a given mode of transportation.
