Acoustics: Sound Fields and Transducers by Leo L. Beranek,Tim Mellow PDF

By Leo L. Beranek,Tim Mellow

Acoustics: Sound Fields and Transducers is a completely up to date model of Leo Beranek's vintage 1954 e-book that keeps and expands at the original's targeted acoustical basics whereas including sensible formulation and simulation equipment.

Serving either as a textual content for college students in engineering departments and as a reference for practising engineers, this e-book makes a speciality of electroacoustics, interpreting the habit of transducers by way of electro-mechano-acoustical circuits. Assuming wisdom of electric circuit concept, it begins via guiding readers in the course of the fundamentals of sound fields, the legislation governing sound iteration, radiation, and propagation, and basic terminology. It then strikes directly to examine:

  • Microphones (electrostatic and electromagnetic), electrodynamic loudspeakers, earphones, and horns
  • Loudspeaker enclosures, baffles, and waveguides
  • Miniature functions (e.g., MEMS in I-Pods and cellphones)
  • Sound in enclosures of all sizes, reminiscent of classrooms, places of work, auditoriums, and dwelling rooms

Numerical examples and precis charts are given during the textual content to make the fabric simply acceptable to useful layout. it's a useful source for experimenters, acoustical specialists, and to those that count on being engineering designers of audio equipment.

  • An replace for the electronic age of Leo Beranek's vintage 1954 booklet Acoustics
  • Provides special acoustic basics, permitting greater figuring out of complicated layout parameters, size equipment, and data
  • Extensive appendices hide frequency-response shapes for loudspeakers, mathematical formulation, and conversion factors
