acoustical engineering Books

  • Engineering Acoustics

    'Engineering acoustics' is a teaching textbook that can serve as a tool for self-study and as a compendium for lectures as well. One of the author's goals is not only to describe how the topic develops but also why a specific way is chosen. The explanations do not restrict themselves to mathematical formulas. Only the illustrative explanation ...

  • 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 ...

  • Urban Forest Acoustics

    Trees can reduce noise by sound reflection and absorption. Investigating noise control in urban environments, Voichita Bucur's new book Urban Forest Acoustics covers the following topics:- dendrological characteristics of trees- factors affecting sound propagation in forest belts- equipment for in situ noise measurements- acoustical sensors for ...

  • Atmospheric Acoustic Remote Sensing

    Sonic Detection and Ranging (SODAR) systems and Radio Acoustic Sounding Systems (RASS) use sound waves to determine wind speed, wind direction, and turbulent character of the atmosphere. They are increasingly used for environmental and scientific applications such as analyzing ground-level pollution dispersion and monitoring conditions affecting ...

  • Cavitation Reaction Engineering

    This monograph treats the new and emerging subject of cavitation reaction engineering, specifically, designing the reactor which involves cavitation driven reaction process produced by the hydrodynamic, acoustic or laser forces. The monograph also illustrates the basic treatment of both physics and chemistry associated with the formation, ...

  • Acoustic Sensing Techniques for the Shallow Water Environment

    Acoustic remote sensing of the ocean environment has seen a remarkable progress in the last ten–fifteen year as a result of an increasing understanding of the experimental techniques and procedures and of the subtleties of the interaction of sound with complex physical and biological processes. This is particularly true in the shallow water ...

  • Acoustic Emission and Critical Phenomena: From Structural Mechanics to Geophysics

    Based on contributions from international experts, this book brings together the state-of-the-art information on topics ranging from the mechanics of materials to geophysics, and outlines the potential of the AE technique in terms of practical applications and theoretical developments. Divided into two parts, it covers Acoustic Emission 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Handbook of Sidescan Sonar

    Seafloor surveying with acoustic remote sensing has become a powerful tool for researchers and professionals seeking knowledge about the structure and behavior of the seafloor. In particular, sidescan sonar is proving to be the preeminent technique, but its data is often difficult to interpret due to the physics of acoustic remote sensing, and to ...
