About the book

Acoustical materials are widely used by noise control engineers for NVH (Noise Vibration and Harshness) reduction in all fields of transportation. Noise has various effects on comfort, performance, and human health. For this reason, noise control plays an increasingly central role in the development of modern industrial and engineering applications. Nowadays, the noise control problem excites and attracts the attention of a great number of scientists in different disciplines. Indeed, noise control has a wide variety of applications in manufacturing, industrial operations, and consumer products. The key to success for controlling noise inside the interior in the transportation field is to study and apply innovative materials with outstanding thermo-acoustic and mechanical properties, as well. For this purpose, the book aims to represent a collection of studies and applications in the field of innovative materials for interior acoustics in transport vehicles, for researchers and acoustic specialists. The book means to supply the reader, both student and researcher or teacher, extensive knowledge of the latest research results in innovative materials for acoustics. I am personally grateful to all the authors that share, with their professionalism and experience, their latest research results contributing to the success of this book.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Lada Bozic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
