Acoustics: Sound Fields and Transducers is a completely up to date model of Leo Beranek's vintage 1954 booklet that keeps and expands at the original's distinctive acoustical basics whereas including functional formulation and simulation tools.

Serving either as a textual content for college students in engineering departments and as a reference for training engineers, this e-book specializes in electroacoustics, studying the habit of transducers simply by electro-mechano-acoustical circuits. Assuming wisdom of electric circuit conception, it starts off through guiding readers throughout the fundamentals of sound fields, the legislation governing sound new release, radiation, and propagation, and normal 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, corresponding to classrooms, workplaces, auditoriums, and residing rooms

Numerical examples and precis charts are given during the textual content to make the cloth simply appropriate to functional layout. it's a invaluable 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 booklet Acoustics
  • Provides exact acoustic basics, permitting larger realizing of advanced layout parameters, size equipment, and data
  • Extensive appendices conceal frequency-response shapes for loudspeakers, mathematical formulation, and conversion factors
