I don't understand why you do not see what I had posted as
comparable since it outputs the same result as described. If
your objection is simply I did not modify the original array,
that is trivial to change.  Where I had posted

m = b Unitize@Clip[a, {1, 15}, {0, 0}]

this could be done as:

b = b Unitize@Clip[a, {1, 15}, {0, 0}]

which would change the original array.

In either case, what is returned is an array containing the
elements of b except those that exceed 15 which are replaced
with 0. That is:

In[18]:= a = RandomInteger[{1, 20}, {4, 3}]
Out[18]= {{8, 9, 11}, {16, 7, 20}, {4, 6, 3}, {12, 13, 16}}

In[19]:= b = RandomReal[1, {4, 3}];
b = b Unitize@Clip[a, {1, 15}, {0, 0}];

In[21]:= a Unitize[b]
Out[21]= {{8, 9, 11}, {0, 7, 0}, {4, 6, 3}, {12, 13, 0}}

showing b now has a 0 where a has a value greater than 15
