Notes on Sound Absorption Technology, K.U. INGARD

Zbigniew Engel

We obtained new book "Notes on Sound Absorption Technology". This book has been written by Professor K.U. Ingard.
Professor K. Uno Ingard was educated at the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
He received the Ph.D. degree in physics from MIT in 1950 and joined the MIT physics department as an assistant professor in 1952, having previously served as the Director of the Chalmers Acoustics Laboratory. He became an associate professor at MIT in 1956, a professor in 1966, and in 1971, he was appointed to a dual professorship in the department of aeronautics and astronautics. He taught acoustics and noise control engineering in the aeronautics department and has research interests ranging from aeroacoustics and nonlinear acoustics to structural vibrations and flow-induced instabilities.
He has worked on a wide variety of problems in acoustics and noise control engineering for more 45 years as a consultant to various industries. He is the author of several books, among them "Theoretical Acoustics", "Fundamentals of Waves and Vibrations", "Linear Acoustic theory", "Introduction to Mechanics", "Matter and Waves". He has authored more than l00 papers related to acoustics and the physics of fluids.
