Architectural Acoustics, Second Edition

Marshall Long


Architectural Acoustics, moment version offers a radical technical evaluate of the self-discipline, from easy ideas to precise layout suggestion. starting with a short historical past, it stories the basics of acoustics, human conception and response to sound, acoustic noise measurements, noise metrics, and environmental noise characterization. In-depth remedy is given to the theoretical rules and sensible purposes of wave acoustics, sound transmission, vibration and vibration isolation, and noise transmission in flooring and mechanical systems.

Chapters on particular layout difficulties reveal how you can observe the idea, together with therapy of multifamily dwellings, workplace structures, rooms for speech, rooms for song, multipurpose rooms, auditoriums, sanctuaries, studios, listening rooms, and the layout of sound reinforcement structures. specific figures illustrate the sensible functions of acoustic rules, exhibiting tips on how to enforce layout rules in genuine structures.

This compendium of theoretical and sensible layout info brings the appropriate innovations, equations, strategies, and particular layout difficulties jointly in a single position, together with either basics and extra complicated fabric. training engineers will locate it a useful reference for his or her day-by-day paintings, whereas complicated scholars will delight in its rigorous remedy of the elemental development blocks of acoustical theory.

  • Considered the main entire source within the box – contains simple basic relatives, derived from first rules, and examples had to remedy actual engineering problems.
  • Provides a well-organized textual content for college students first forthcoming the topic in addition to a competent reference for skilled practitioners trying to refresh their technical wisdom base.
  • New content material for constructing execs contains case experiences and insurance of particular concentration components reminiscent of audio visible layout, theaters, and live performance halls.
