... my students have found the book invaluable for learning how to use ANSYS Workbench for solving vibro-acoustics problems. The examples are numerous, detailed, well-chosen and complete with theoretical solutions. For these reasons and others, I believe ANSYS users will keep a copy of the book nearby and refer to it often. -Noise Control Engineering Journal, July-August 2015 A tour de force of quintessential theoretical acoustical topics with an exceptionally coherent crash course in finite element analysis (FEA) software. -Journal of the Audio Engineering Society This book is a must for those wanting to explore and investigate the world of computational engineering acoustics. ...Its comprehensive instructional framework supports a conversational, down-to-earth narrative style. -Andrew Peplow, Noise and vibration specialist, Atlas Copco Rock Drills, Sweden These guys know their stuff!! ...I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who is involved in acoustic modelling - it forms the perfect basis for acoustic course work as well as being useful for research and industrial modelling of acoustic devices. -Ian Bedwell, Thales Australia, Underwater Systems, Technical Consultant
