This up-to-date second edition provides a comprehensive examination of the theory and application of Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) in acoustics and vibration. Complete with examples and data taken from real problems this unique book also explores
the influence of computers on SEA and emphasizes computer based SEA calculations. In addition to a discussion of the relationship between SEA and other procedures used in response estimation, Theory and Application of Statistical Energy Anlaysis, Second
Edition, explores the basic relationships between model and wave descriptions of systems.

Dr. Richard H. Lyon has been working in the field of acoustics, vibrations, and dynamics since the early 1950's. After completing his undergraduate work at Evansville College, Dr. Lyon entered MIT as a physics graduate student in September 1952. He did his Ph.D. thesis research under Prof. K. U.Ingard on the turbulent excitation of strings. In his final student year at MIT, he was elected to Sigma Xi, and held the Owens-Corning Fellowship in Acoustics. He received the Ph.D. in physics from MIT in June 1955.
After one year as a research staff member at MIT, R. Lyon joined the Electrical Engineering Department of the University of Minnesota as an Assistant Professor. He taught courses in acoustics, circuit theory and random processes and carried out research on flow stability and random vibration. In June 1959 he was promoted to Associate Professor.
In September 1960 he joined the staff of Bolt Beranek and Newman Inc. of Cambridge, Mass. He worked on problems of sound-structure interaction and excitation of structures by turbulence for industry, NASA and the Department of Defense. In 1964 he became Department Head and in 1967 he became a Division Director and Corporate Vice President.
In 1970 he joined MIT as Professor of Mechanical Engineering. At MIT he led research in noise propagation and machinery noise and taught courses in basic and applied acoustics. Each summer, he teaches a course in designing products for better sound quality to engineers from industry. Dr. Lyon retired from MIT in July 1995 and moved full time into RH Lyon Corp in Cambridge, MA.
The business of RH Lyon Corp is concerned with the design and diagnostics of products, primarily with regard to sound and vibration. The clients of the company have been primarily from the consumer and office products industries, including Maytag, Whirlpool, General Motors, Ford, Xerox, HP, General Electric, Scott & Fetzer, Thomson Consumer Electronics, Bosch, Raytheon, Kimberly-Clark, and Westinghouse.

A comprehensive treatment of statistical energy analysis of acoustics and vibrations for mechanical engineers involved in predicting noise and transmission in their designs. Emphasizes the growing integration of the method with other approaches so that it becomes less an alternative than a component in an overall response estimation. Describes mode counts, damping and coupling loss factors, energy distribution in an excited system, and other topics. The first edition (no date noted) was titled Statistical Energy Analysis of Dynamical Systems: Theory and Applications. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.
