A clear treatment of the fundamental principles underlying the generation, transmission, & reception of acoustic waves & their application to numerous fields. Analyzes the various types of vibration of solid bodies & the propagation of sound waves through fluid media. The third edition features discussions of antiresonance concert hall acoustics, detection theory, canonical equations, normal mode propagation in the ocean, & environmental acoustics. Material on absorption, hearing, architectural acoustics, & underwater sound has been expanded & updated.

This is the first focused and detailed textbook on acoustic virtual reality. Auralization is the creation of audible acoustic sceneries from computer-generated data. The term "auralization" is to be understood as being analogue to the well-known technique of "visualization". In visual illustration of scenes, data or any other meaningful information, in movie animation and in computer graphics, we describe the process of "making visible" as visualization. In acoustics, auralization is taking place when acoustic effects, primary sound signals or means of sound reinforcement or sound transmission, are processed to be presented by using electro-acoustic equipment. This book is organized as a comprehensive collection of basics, methodology and strategies of acoustic simulation and auralization.

Market_Desc: Physicists, Acoustics/Sound Engineers, Architects. Special Features: · Two new chapters on finite-amplitude acoustics and shock waves introduce the underlying acoustic principles and demonstrate how the fundamentals of acoustics can extend to more complicated problems.· The discussion of normal modes and waveguides now appear in a single chapter, and includes normal modes in cylindrical and spherical cavities and propagation in layers.· Appendices now provide more information on physical constants, elementary transcendental functions, elements of thermodynamics, and elasticity and viscosity.· Material on absorption, hearing, architectural acoustics and underwater sound has been expanded and updated. About The Book: The classic acoustics reference! This widely-used book offers a clear treatment of the fundamental principles underlying the generation, transmission, and reception of acoustic waves and their application to numerous fields. The authors analyze the various types of vibration of solid bodies and the propagation of sound waves through fluid media.

Blackstock (mechanical engineering, U. of Texas) presents an introductory textbook on the physics of sound written for a two-semester graduate-level course. For part of the book, he attempts to keep the mathematics at a fairly basic level, while covering such topics as propagation, reflection and tr.
