Acoustics: Sound Fields and Transducers by Leo L. Beranek,Tim Mellow

By Leo L. Beranek,Tim Mellow

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

Serving either as a textual content for college students in engineering departments and as a reference for practising engineers, this ebook specializes in electroacoustics, examining the habit of transducers as a result of electro-mechano-acoustical circuits. Assuming wisdom of electric circuit thought, it starts off by means of 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, akin to classrooms, places of work, auditoriums, and residing rooms

Numerical examples and precis charts are given through the textual content to make the cloth simply acceptable to functional layout. it's a priceless source for experimenters, acoustical specialists, and to those that expect being engineering designers of audio equipment.

  • An replace for the electronic age of Leo Beranek's vintage 1954 e-book Acoustics
  • Provides precise acoustic basics, permitting higher realizing of complicated layout parameters, dimension equipment, and data
  • Extensive appendices hide frequency-response shapes for loudspeakers, mathematical formulation, and conversion factors
