About the author (1996)

CYRIL M. HARRIS, one of the world's leading authorities on shock, vibration, and noise control, currently lectures at Columbia University where he is the Charles Batchelor Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering and Professor Emeritus of Architecture. Dr. Harris has received many honors for his scientific and engineering achievements, including membership in both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. He has been the recipient of the Gold Medal and the Sabine Medal of the Acoustical Society of America, the Franklin Medal of the Franklin Institute, the Gold Medal of the Audio Engineering Society, and the A.I.A. Medal of the American Institute of Architects.

He received his Ph.D. degree in Physics from M.I.T. and has been awarded honorary doctorates by Northwestern University and the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Among books written or edited by Dr. Harris are the following McGraw-Hill publications: HANDBOOK OF ACOUSTICAL MEASUREMENTS AND NOISE CONTROL, Third Edition (1991); NOISE CONTROL IN BUILDINGS (1994); DICTIONARY OF ARCHITECTURE AND CONSTRUCTION, Third Edition (2000); and HANDBOOK OF UTILITIES AND SERVICES FOR BUILDINGS (1990.ALLAN G. PIERSOL is a professional engineer in private practice specializing in the analysis of and design for shock, vibration, and acoustical environments. He received a B.S. in engineering physics from the University of Illinois and an M.S. in engineering from UCLA, and is licensed in both mechanical and safety engineering. Mr. Piersol is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology, and a recipient of the latter organization's Irvin Vigness Memorial Award. He is the co-author with Julius S. Bendat of several books, including ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF CORRELATION AND SPECTRAL ANALYSIS and RANDOM DATA: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT PROCEDURES, as well as a contributor to numerous engineering handbooks. Mr. Piersol was previously a Principal Engineer at Bolt, Beranek and Newman, Inc., and an adjunct instructor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southern California.
