Foundations of Engineering Acoustics
|von Frank Fahy|
Kurzbeschreibung Foundations of Engineering Acoustics takes the reader on a journey from a qualitative introduction to the physical nature of sound, explained in terms of common experience, to mathematical models and analytical results which which underly the techniques applied by the engineering industry to improve the acoustic performance of their products. The book is distinguished by extensive descriptions and explanations of audio-frequency acoustic phenomena and their relevance to engineering, supported by a wealth of diagrams, and by a guide for teachers of tried and tested class demonstrations and laboratory-based experiments.
Foundations of Engineering Acoustics is a textbook suitable for both senior undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Mechanical, Aerospace, Marine and, possibly, Electrical and Civil Engineering Schools at Universities. It will be a valuable reference for academic teachers and researchers and will also assist Industrial Acoustic Group staff and Consultants.
Frank Fahy has been teaching and researching at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, Southampton, England, for nearly forty years. He is Emeritus Professor of Engineering Acoustics, signifying both his training and professional motivation. He is a Rayleigh Medal holder and Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Acoustics.
Synopsis This is an exposition of the fundamental elements of audio-frequency sound and vibration, with emphasis on those which relate to noise generation by machinery, vehicles and industrial plant, and to the practice of noise control engineering. Many other examples of applications are also included: building acoustics, audio-engineering, underwater acoustics and musical acoustics. It is written principally for undergraduates and junior postgraduates who wish to study acoustics and associated...
