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 unique acoustical basics whereas including sensible formulation and simulation equipment.

Serving either as a textual content for college kids in engineering departments and as a reference for working towards engineers, this e-book specializes in electroacoustics, examining the habit of transducers by using electro-mechano-acoustical circuits. Assuming wisdom of electric circuit concept, it begins by means of guiding readers during the fundamentals of sound fields, the legislation governing sound iteration, radiation, and propagation, and normal terminology. It then strikes directly to examine:

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

Numerical examples and precis charts are given through the textual content to make the cloth simply acceptable to useful layout. it's a invaluable source for experimenters, acoustical specialists, 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 unique acoustic basics, allowing higher knowing of complicated layout parameters, dimension tools, and data
  • Extensive appendices conceal frequency-response shapes for loudspeakers, mathematical formulation, and conversion factors
