Here is the first modern text that treats sound and vibration damping from a united point of view. It focuses on the development and use of polymers for sound and vibration damping, with applications primarily in the marine, automotive, appliance, and machinery areas. Blends and interpenetrating networks are addressed for their ability to damp over broad temperature and frequency ranges. Also includes several review papers which develop fundamental points of view, both scientific and engineering.
