"The first edition of this book is considered the bible of this topic... Suffice it to say that there is no other published treatise that approaches the depth of treatment offered by this book. The coverage is the state of the published art, while the added contents cover the new known developments in the field." Haisam Osman; Technology Development Manager, United Launch Alliance

This long-awaited second edition of a respected text from world leaders in the field of acoustic materials covers the state of the art with a depth of treatment unrivalled elsewhere. Allard and Atalla employ a logical and progressive approach that leads to a thorough understanding of porous material modelling.

The first edition of Propagation of Sound in Porous Media introduced the basic theory of acoustics and the related techniques. Research and development in sound absorption has however progressed significantly since the first edition, and the models and methods described, at the time highly technical and specialized, have since become main stream. In this second edition, several original topics have been revisited and practical prediction methods and industrial applications have been added that increase the breadth of its appeal to both academics and practising engineers.

New chapters have also been added on numerical modeling in both low (finite element) and high frequency (Transfer Matrix Method).

Collating ‘must-have’ information for engineers working in sound and vibration, Propagation of Sound in Porous Media, 2nd edition offers an indisputable reference to a diverse audience; including graduate students and academics in mechanical & civil engineering, acoustics and noise control, as well as practising mechanical, chemical and materials engineers in the automotive, rail, aerospace, building and civil industries.
