Handbook of Acoustics (047125293X) cover image
Acoustical engineers, researchers, architects, and designers need a comprehensive, single-volume reference that provides quick and convenient access to important information, answers and questions on a broad spectrum of topics, and helps solve the toughest problems in acoustical design and engineering. The Handbook of Acoustics meets that need. It offers concise coverage of the science and engineering of acoustics and vibration.

In more than 100 clearly written chapters, experts from around the world share their knowledge and expertise in topics ranging from basic aerodynamics and jet noise to acoustical signal processing, and from the interaction of fluid motion and sound to infrasound, ultrasonics, and quantum acoustics. Topics covered include:
* General linear acoustics
* Nonlinear acoustics and cavitation
* Aeroacoustics and atmospheric sound
* Mechanical vibrations and shock
* Statistical methods in acoustics
* Architectural acoustics
* Physiological acoustics
* Underwater sound
* Ultrasonics, quantum acoustics, and physical aspects of sound
* Noise: its effects and control
* Acoustical signal processing
* Psychological acoustics
* Speech communication
* Music and musical acoustics
* Acoustical measurements and instrumentation
* Transducers

The Handbook of Acoustics belongs on the reference shelf of every engineer, architect, research scientist, or designer with a professional interest in the propagation, control, transmission, and effects of sound.
