'The text is well written and supported by clear and useful illustrations. This would be a useful textbook for postgraduate or advanced undergraduate studies and would also make a good introductory text for engineers moving into the field. The literature survey and bibliography provide a useful starting point for further study.'

Active Control of Aircraft Cabin Noise provides a bridge to fill the gap between robust control theory and practical applications of active noise control systems in aircraft cabin. Both the possibilities and limitations of structural solutions to enhance aircraft cabin comfort by reducing interior noise are discussed supported by a wide range of topics in engineering, from finite element modeling to multichannel adaptive feed-forward control, usually dealt separately in the literature. In addition, experimental noise attenuation results with passengers' subjective perceptions predicting the effects of cabin noise on comfort assessments is examined. Theoretical and experimental research is detailed enough to capture the interest of the non-expert in engineering who wishes to have an overview of some of the active noise control applications in aircraft. This book may be used as an advanced textbook by graduate and undergraduate students in aeronautical engineering, and would be an authoritative resource book for research into the subject.
