Engineering Acoustics is a featured book on Wikibooks because it contains substantial content, it is well-formatted, and the Wikibooks community has decided to feature it on the main page or in other places. Please continue to improve it and thanks for the great work so . This course is inspired by the book of Dowling and Ffowcs Williams: “Sound and Sources of Sound” [52]. We also used the lecture notes of the course on aero- andhydroacoustics given by Crighton, Dowling, Ffowcs Williams, Heckl and Leppington [42]. Among the literature on acoustics the book of Pierce [] is an excellent introduction. The book is devoted to the very basis of acoustics and vibro-acoustics. The physics of the phenomena, the analytical methods and the modern numerical techniques are presented in a concise form. Many examples illustrate the fundamental problems and predictions (analytic or numerical) and are often compared to experiments. Acoustics is the branch of physics that deals with the study of mechanical waves in gases, liquids, and solids including topics such as vibration, sound, ultrasound and infrasound. A scientist who works in the field of acoustics is an acoustician while someone working in the field of acoustics technology may be called an acoustical engineer.

ACOUSTICS. Leo L. Beranek. Source of practical acoustical concepts and theory, with information on microphones, loud-speakers and speaker enclosures, and room acoustics. pp, hardcover (original published )/5. Vital to the acoustics field is an understanding of its terminology: sound pressure, density, speed and velocity, impedance, intensity, energy density, and levels. The reader is urged to carry the material of this chapter in mind as these concepts occur over and over in the subsequent chapters.

e-books in Acoustics & Sound category Acoustics - Wikibooks, Acoustics is the science that studies sound, its production, transmission, and effects. This book describes the fundamentals of acoustics and some of the major applications which are dependent upon the nature of the sound that is to be produced. The Little Red Book of Acoustics is a small book giving an overview of UK acoustic kauainenehcp.com book also gives an introduction to acoustics and acoustic definitions.. This acoustics book is often used by professionals working in areas where some understanding in acoustics is required such as members of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and Town Planners. This book describes the results of such acoustical investigations – intellectual and practical exercises of great fascination. Addressed to readers with a reasonable grasp of physics who are not put off by a little mathematics, this book discusses most of the traditional instruments currently in use in Western music.
