Acoustics and Audio Technology, Third Edition, is an introductory text for students of sound and vibration as well as electrical and electronic engineering, civil and mechanical engineering, computer science, signals and systems, and engineering physics. A basic knowledge of basic engineering mathematics and physics is assumed. Problems are included at the end of the chapters and a solutions manual is available to instructors. This classroom-tested book covers the physical background to and mathematical treatment of sound propagation, the properties of human hearing, the generation and radiation of sound as well as noise control, and the technologies used for pickup, recording, and reproduction of sound in various environments, and much more.Key FeaturesPresents a basic short course on acoustics, fundamental equations, and sound propagationDiscusses the principles of architectural acoustics, techniques for adjusting room acoustics, and various types of sound absorbersOffers an overview of the acoustical, mechanical, and electrical properties of loudspeakers and microphones, which are important transducersProvides an overview of the properties of hearing and voiceIncludes end-of-chapter problems and solutions available to instructors as WAV material
