Architectural Acoustics (Applications of Modern Acoustics) by Marshall Long

By Marshall Long

Architectural Acoustics bargains a complete evaluation of acoustical technological know-how at a degree appropriate for both complex undergraduate or introductory graduate classes in architectural layout and architectural engineering. The textual content is geared up based on how sound interacts with equipped constructions, going from uncomplicated geometries via advanced construction buildings. The booklet starts with a quick yet beneficial historical past of structure and the position of acoustics, in addition to assessment of human notion of, sound, after which progresses via subject matters starting from acoustic dimension, noise metrics and environmental noise, to sound in enclosed areas, sound transmission in structures, vibration and vibration isolation, and noise in mechanical systems.

Architectural Acoustics additionally contains extra complex chapters on particular layout difficulties, together with therapy of multifamily dwellings, workplace constructions, sound reinforcement platforms, rooms for song, multipurpose rooms, auditoriums, sanctuaries, and studios and listening rooms. additionally lined is the speculation loudspeaker platforms and sound procedure modeling in addition to in-depth presentation of laptop modeling, ray tracing and auralization.
