Summary
This volume is a comprehensive source of information on the fundamentals of hearing and sound physics. Using research from 1980 onward, this book is a critical review of past and up-to-date research findings and concepts on the effects of noise on people it focuses on the psychological and physiological affects of noise on hearing and performance. This text elucidates the interrelations of the acoustical, physiological, psychological, and sociological factors that are involved in making noise a problem to individuals and societies. Also discussed are hearing loss, speech communications, annoyance, and health effects criteria for the limitation of exposures to noise in living and work areas
