Biographical Sketches of Committee Members

George C. Maling, Jr. (chair) is Managing Director Emeritus of the Institute of Noise Control Engineering of the USA (INCE/USA), past president of the INCE Foundation, managing editor of Noise/News International, and vice president for communications of the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering. In 1958 he became a consultant to the International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), and he joined the company in 1965. In 1992 he retired as senior engineer, having worked on numerous projects related to noise control engineering, including research, standards, and product design. During his IBM years he worked on several national and international standards and served a term as chair of the American National Standards Committee S1, which at the time included noise measurement standards. Dr. Maling is the author of more than 80 technical papers and several articles in handbooks—most recently a chapter on noise for the Springer Handbook of Acoustics (2007). He has also edited numerous conference proceedings for the INTER-NOISE and NOISE-CON series of conferences. A fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), and the Audio Engineering Society, he received the Silver Medal in Noise from ASA in 1992 and the Rayleigh Medal from the Institute of Acoustics (United Kingdom) in 1999. He served as president of INCE/USA in 1975 and received the Distinguished Noise Control Engineer Award from that organization in 2001. He received the INCE/USA Distinguished Service Medal in 2009. Dr. Maling was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1998. He received his Ph.D. in physics (1963), an electrical engineering degree (1958), an M.S.E.E. (1954), and a B.S. (1954), all from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He also received an A.B. in physics (1954) from Bowdoin College.

Bernhard received his B.S.M.E. from Iowa State University in 1973, his M.S.M.E. from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1976, and his Ph.D. in engineering mechanics from Iowa State University in 1982. He then joined the faculty of the School of Mechanical Engineering of Purdue University. From 1994 to 2004, he was director of the Ray W. Herrick Laboratories at Purdue, and from 1998 to 2007, he was director of the Institute for Safe, Quiet, and Durable Highways. From 2004 to 2007, he was associate vice president for research at Purdue. In August 2007 he left Purdue for Notre Dame, where he became vice president for research and professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering. Dr. Bernhard’s areas of expertise include tire noise, traffic noise, numerical noise control design methods, noise source identification, active noise and vibration control, and machinery noise control. He is a past president of the Institute of Noise Control Engineering of the USA (INCE/USA) and has been the secretary general of the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering since 2000. He is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Acoustical Society of America and was named a Distinguished Noise Control Engineer by the Institute of Noise Control Engineering in 2003.


Robert D. Bruce, principal engineer at Collaboration in Science and Technology Inc. (CSTI Acoustics), is a registered professional engineer and is board certified by the Institute of Noise Control Engineering of the USA (INCE/USA). He has served as chair of local chapters of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) in Boston and Houston, the ASA Technical Committee on Noise, and the INCE Technical Advisory Group on Industrial Machines and Processes. In 1986 he was president of INCE/USA. Mr. Bruce has given lectures on industrial noise control at the National Academy of Sciences Acoustical Society Lecture Series in 1971 and at universities throughout the country. His career has focused on the prediction and control of noise in the workplace, and he has written 12 chapters in books, mostly on industrial noise measurement, prediction, and control. He has also authored or coauthored more than 35 publications on industrial noise control. A fellow of ASA and a long-time
