Noise and Vibration affects all kinds of engineering structures, and is fast becoming an integral part of engineering courses at universities and colleges around the world.

In this second edition, Michael Norton's classic text has been extensively updated to take into account recent developments in the field. Much of the new material has been provided by Denis Karczub, who joins Michael as second author for this edition.

This book treats both noise and vibration in a single volume, with particular emphasis on wave-mode duality and interactions between sound waves and solid structures. There are numerous case studies, test cases, and examples for students to work through.

The book is primarily intended as a textbook for senior level undergraduate and graduate courses, but is also a valuable reference for researchers and professionals looking to gain an overview of the field.

  • Revised classic text
  • Combines noise and vibration in one book
  • Ideal for undergraduate courses, practising engineers and researchers.
About the Authors

Michael P. Norton is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at the University of Western Australia, the Director of the Centre for Acoustics, Dynamics and Vibration at that University, and a Foundation Director of SVT - Engineering Consultants.

Denis G. Karczub is Principal Engineer at SVT - Engineering Consultants. He studied mechanical engineering at the University of Western Australia, graduating with honours in 1991, and going on to obtain his PhD in 1997.

Industry Reviews

'Thoroughly enjoyable, well written, economic, and beautifully printed in the traditional style of the Cambridge University Press. It makes a valuable addition to the libraries of students and practising specialists alike.' Applied Mechanics Reviews 'This is a fine text, comprehensive in content, with depth enough for post graduate students, consultants and researchers alike. Few texts deal with both noise and vibration in any detail; this one is accordingly welcome.' Dr C W Stammers, University of Bath 'Printed in excellent conditions, the present book is of interest to students, researchers and teachers, doctoral students, engineers and mathematicians.' Iasi Polytechnic Magazine 'The authors' erudition and their admirable willingness and ability to treat theory and practice on an equal footing makes fundamantals of Noise and Vibration Analysis for engineers a worthy addition to the corpus of noise and vibration texts ... the clarity with which the authors chart the development of theory all the way to its practical application also make the book eminently well suited to practitioners and specialists requiring a fundemental overview of a new field.'
