Description:

Acoustics: Sound Fields and Transducers is a modern expansion and re-working of Acoustics, the 1954 classic reference written by Leo L. Beranek.Updated throughout and focused on electroacoustics with the needs of a broad range of acoustics engineers and scientists in mind, the new book retains and expands on the detailed acoustical fundamentals included in the original whilst adding practical formulas and simulation methods for practicing professionals.Benefitting from the author's lifetime experience as a leader in the field, Acoustics: Sound Fields and Transducers is a modern classic to keep close to hand in the lab, office and design studio.Builds on Beranek's 1954 Acoustics classic by incorporating recent developments, practical formulas and methods for effective simulationProvides the detailed acoustic fundamentals that other books on electroacoustics lack, enabling better understanding of complex design parameters, measurement methods and dataBrings together topics currently scattered across a variety of books and sources into one valuable referenceIncludes relevant case studies, real-world examples and solutions to bring the theory to life
