Active Control of Aircraft Cabin Noise
- About the Authors
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.

Dr Ignazio Dimino was born in Sciacca (AG) on May 24th, 1980. He graduated with honors in Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Palermo, Italy, in 2004. He earned his Ph.D. in Aeronautics from Imperial College of London, UK, under the supervision of prof. Ferri Aliabadi. He was also visiting researcher at Center of Acoustics and Vibration of Penn State University, State College, (Pennsylvania) USA in 2008. Since 2004, his research has focused on the fundamentals of adaptive structures, including wing morphing, active noise and vibration control and smart materials.
