acoustic modelling Books

  • Underwater Acoustics

    Sound waves are the only practical means of remote investigation of the sea and its bottom and transmission in seawater. Underwater acoustics has become one of the major technologies used in the exploration and exploitation of the oceans for scientific, industrial, or military/naval purposes. It is widely employed in the fields of ocean ...

  • Computational Atmospheric Acoustics

    Noise from cars, trains, and aeroplanes can be heard at large distances from the source. Accurate predictions of the loudness of the noise require accurate computations of sound propagation in the atmosphere. This book describes models that can be used for these computations. The models take into account complex effects of the atmosphere and ...

It will provide a critical evaluation of the data and models pertaining to high-frequency acoustic interaction with the seafloor, which will be of interest to researchers in underwater acoustics and to developers of commercial and military sonars.Models and data are presented ...

  • Acoustic Signal Processing for Ocean Exploration

    Acoustic Signal Processing for Ocean Explortion has two major goals: (i) to present signal processing algorithms that take into account the models of acoustic propagation in the ocean and; (ii) to give a perspective of the broad set of techniques, problems, and applications arising in ocean exploration. The book discusses related issues and ...

  • Percolation Models for Transport in Porous Media

    This book presents a new percolation theory for fluid flow and electric current in heterogeneous porous media. Several models for different types of flow are developed. These models are applied in multi-phase flow in porous media, petrophysical investigations of rock properties, and effects of electric current treatment and acoustic treatment ...

  • Poromechanics II: Proceedings of the Second Biot Conference on Poromechanics, Grenoble, France, 26-28 August 2002

    These proceedings deal with the fundamentals and applications of poromechanics to geomechanics, material sciences, geophysics, acoustics and biomechanics. They discuss the state of the art in such topics as constitutive modelling and upscaling ...

  • IUTAM Symposium on Designing for Quietness

    It is well known that noise control at the source is the most cost-effective. Designing for quietness is therefore the most important concept in Engineering Acoustics or Technical Acoustics. The IUTAM Symposium on Designing for Quietness held at the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore in December 2000, was probably the first on this topic ...

  • Physics of Tsunamis

    There has been significant progress in tsunami research, monitoring and mitigation within the last decade. This book summarizes the state-of-the-art knowledge on tsunamis. It presents a comprehensive overview of tsunamis, seaquakes and other catastrophic ocean phenomena. It describes up-to-date models of tsunamis generated by a submarine ...

    The first publication of its kind to feature state-of-the-art research on economical and timely ways to evaluate a wide range of soil and rock characteristics. 20 comprehensive peer-reviewed papers are divided into the following key areas: Nondestructive Testing Methods In The Laboratory -- Evaluation techniques including X-ray absorption, ...

  • Theory and Applications of Nonviscous Fluid Flows

    The purpose of this book is to present a broad panorama of model problems encountered in nonviscous Newtonian fluid flows. This is achieved by investigating the significant features of the solutions of the corresponding equations using the method of asymptotic analysis. The book thereby fills a long-standing gap in the literature by providing ...

  • Seismic Wave Propagation and Scattering in the Heterogenous Earth

    Seismic waves – generated both by natural earthquakes and by man-made sources – have produced an enormous amount of information about the Earth's interior. In classical seismology, the Earth is modeled as a sequence of uniform horizontal layers (or sperical shells) having different elastic properties and one determines these properties from travel ...

  • Recent Advances in Nuclear Explosion Monitoring

    This topical volume focuses on the most recent advances that have been achieved in relevant fields of research of nuclear test ban monitoring, including seismology, infrasound- and hydro-acoustics, as well as nuclear physics and atmospheric backtracking. This research has been presented during the special sessions on 'Research and Development in ...

  • Infrasound Monitoring for Atmospheric Studies

    The infrasound field, the science of low-frequency acoustic waves, has developed into a broad interdisciplinary field encompassing academic disciplines of physics and recent technical and scientific developments.In 1996, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting atmospheric nuclear ...

  • Helioseismic Diagnostics of Solar Convection and Activity

    This book focuses on the recent advances in our understanding of solar convection and activity, and on new methods and results of helioseismic diagnostics of the internal structures and dynamics of solar convection and active regions. The methods of local helioseismology (time-distance tomography, ring-diagram analysis, acoustic imaging, and ...

  • Rock Physics and Natural Hazards

    Natural hazards events such as earthquakes or volcanic eruptions involve activation of coupled thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical processes in rocks. The 7th Euro-conference of Rock Physics and Geomechanics was held September 25 to 30, 2007, in Erice (Italy), to explore how rock physics experiments and models can facilitate understanding and constraint ...
