Architectural Acoustics by Marshall Long

By Marshall Long

Architectural Acoustics, moment version provides a radical technical evaluate of the self-discipline, from uncomplicated thoughts to precise layout recommendation. starting with a quick heritage, it studies the basics of acoustics, human conception and response to sound, acoustic noise measurements, noise metrics, and environmental noise characterization. In-depth remedy is given to the theoretical rules and functional purposes of wave acoustics, sound transmission, vibration and vibration isolation, and noise transmission in flooring and mechanical systems.

Chapters on particular layout difficulties display find out how to follow the idea, together with therapy of multifamily dwellings, place of work constructions, rooms for speech, rooms for song, multipurpose rooms, auditoriums, sanctuaries, studios, listening rooms, and the layout of sound reinforcement platforms. distinct figures illustrate the sensible purposes of acoustic ideas, exhibiting the best way to enforce layout rules in genuine structures.

This compendium of theoretical and sensible layout info brings the suitable suggestions, equations, thoughts, and particular layout difficulties jointly in a single position, together with either basics and extra complicated fabric. practising engineers will locate it a useful reference for his or her day-by-day paintings, whereas complex scholars will relish its rigorous remedy of the fundamental development blocks of acoustical theory.

  • Considered the main entire source within the box – comprises uncomplicated basic relatives, derived from first ideas, and examples had to resolve genuine engineering problems.
  • Provides a well-organized textual content for college kids first coming near near the topic in addition to a competent reference for skilled practitioners trying to refresh their technical wisdom base.
  • New content material for constructing execs comprises case reports and assurance of particular concentration components corresponding to audio visible layout, theaters, and live performance halls.
