It is our great pleasure to invite you to contribute to this special issue by presenting your results on acoustic noise barriers. The main concern is to protect humans from excessive noise, which may impair the hearing system or may impede concentration and rest. The papers can focus on structural noise control, for instance vibrating panels or full device casings designed to improve passive isolation. Energy of the panels due to acoustic excitation can also be dissipated in a semi-active circuit or they can be forced to vibrate in order to reduce the transmitted noise. Works on the generation of virtual barriers like acoustic curtains are welcome. Techniques for improving the acoustic climate in enclosures are also appreciated. The papers can present modeling, optimization, control, measurements, analysis, and applications.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
