By Leo L. Beranek,Tim Mellow

Acoustics: Sound Fields and Transducers is a completely up to date model of Leo Beranek's vintage 1954 ebook that keeps and expands at the original's exact acoustical basics whereas including functional formulation and simulation equipment.

Serving either as a textual content for college students in engineering departments and as a reference for practising engineers, this e-book makes a speciality of electroacoustics, reading the habit of transducers by way of electro-mechano-acoustical circuits. Assuming wisdom of electric circuit idea, it starts off through guiding readers throughout the fundamentals of sound fields, the legislation governing sound iteration, radiation, and propagation, and basic terminology. It then strikes directly to examine:

  • Microphones (electrostatic and electromagnetic), electrodynamic loudspeakers, earphones, and horns
  • Loudspeaker enclosures, baffles, and waveguides
  • Miniature purposes (e.g., MEMS in I-Pods and cellphones)
  • Sound in enclosures of all sizes, comparable to study rooms, workplaces, auditoriums, and dwelling rooms

Numerical examples and precis charts are given in the course of the textual content to make the fabric simply acceptable to useful layout. it's a helpful source for experimenters, acoustical experts, and to people who expect being engineering designers of audio equipment.

  • An replace for the electronic age of Leo Beranek's vintage 1954 publication Acoustics
  • Provides special acoustic basics, permitting greater knowing of advanced layout parameters, dimension tools, and data
  • Extensive appendices conceal frequency-response shapes for loudspeakers, mathematical formulation, and conversion factors
