Application of Noise Control Materials to Trucks and Buses 2002-01-3063
This paper provides an overview of sound and sound package (noise control) materials that are used in heavy trucks and buses. Transportation noise is a longstanding and complex problem. The challenge is to have a thorough understanding of the source-path-receiver relationship with respect to the noise generation and propagation such that one can find feasible solutions and applications of noise control materials. This paper discusses different types of noise control materials and also provides some examples of different noise control material applications.
