A new authoratitive text book has just been published featuring a chapter by our Director, Adrian James.
Entitled “Uncertainty in Acoustics: Measurement, Prediction and Assessment”, this scholarly publication is aimed at acoustic specialists, mechanical and building service engineers, environmental health officers, architects and building professionals.
The book was compiled and edited by the late Bob Peters whose death sadly was announced in June 2020. Bob worked for over forty years in acoustics and noise control, teaching, research and consultancy. He was a senior research fellow at London South Bank University, and a tutor on Institute of Acoustics distance learning courses.
The book provides a guide to estimating uncertainties in the measurement, prediction and assessment of noise and vibration. The 14 chapters cover environmental noise and vibration, occupational noise and vibration exposure, and building and architectural acoustics.
Leading specialists have drawn on their own research and information from the various Standards. With 127 illustrations and many case studies, the book enables estimation of uncertainty in the measurement and prediction of acoustic quantities. This detailed analysis is suitable for use in environmental impact and occupational exposure assessments
Adrian James’ chapter covers Uncertainty in Room Acoustic Measurements and the publication is available as a 464-page book or as a Kindle edition. It is published by CRC Press (ISBN number 9781498769167).
