e-books in Acoustics & Sound category

- Wikibooks , 2012
Acoustics is the science that studies sound, its production, transmission, and effects. This book describes the fundamentals of acoustics and some of the major applications which are dependent upon the nature of the sound that is to be produced.
The Dynamical Theory of SoundThe Dynamical Theory of Sound
by Horace Lamb - E. Arnold , 1910
The present treatise is devoted mainly to the dynamical aspect of sound. It is accordingly to a great extent mathematical, but the author tried to restrict himself to methods and processes which shall be as simple and direct as is possible.
Acoustics And ArchitectureAcoustics And Architecture
by Paul E. Sabine - McGraw-Hill , 1932
Contents: Nature and properties of sound; Sustained sound in an inclosure; Reverberation theoretical and experimental; Measurement of absorption coefficients; Sound absorption coefficients of materials; Reverberation and the acoustics of rooms; etc.
The Physics of Music and Musical InstrumentsThe Physics of Music and Musical Instruments
by David Lapp - Tufts University , 2003
The book covers the physics of waves, sound, music, and musical instruments at a high school physics level. A resource for those teaching or learning waves and sound from the middle school through college, at the mathematical or conceptual level.

The Physical Basis Of MusicThe Physical Basis Of Music
by E. T. Jaynes - Washington University , 1996
The main purpose of this book is to explain certain physical considerations useful not only to a beginner learning how to play a musical instrument, but also to an accomplished musician trying to gain full technical mastery of an instrument.
The Boundary Element Method in AcousticsThe Boundary Element Method in Acoustics
by Stephen Kirkup - Integrated Sound Software , 2007
The book is an introduction to the boundary element method (BEM) and its application to acoustic problems. Software implementing the methods is available. Examples of realistic application illustrate the potential of the BEM in acoustic simulation.
Engineering AcousticsEngineering Acoustics
- Wikibooks , 2006
Engineering acoustics is the study of the generation and manipulation of sound waves, from an engineering perspective. The book describes some of the fundamental principles of acoustics, it requires knowledge of calculus and differential equations.
The Theory of Sound, Volume OneThe Theory of Sound, Volume One
by J. W. S. Rayleigh, Robert B. Lindsay - MacMillan , 1894
One of the first books in the field of acoustics, written in a very logical manner, many topics are the research results of Lord Rayleigh himself. Any acoustician who wants to understand physical principles should start with Rayleighs work.
Introduction To Sound ProcessingIntroduction To Sound Processing
by Davide Rocchesso - Davide Rocchesso , 2003
This is an introductory book on sound processing. By reading this book, you may expect to acquire some knowledge on the mathematical, algorithmic, and computational tools important in order to become proficient sound designer or manipulator.
The Sounding ObjectThe Sounding Object
by Davide Rocchesso, Federico Fontana - Mondo Estremo Publishing , 2003
The authors are striving to develop principles that may open the way to get appropriate informative sounds out of future artifacts. They present novel research in perception, physics, numeral analysis, computer science, and human-machine interaction.
Vibrations and WavesVibrations and Waves
by Benjamin Crowell - , 2008
This is a text on vibrations and waves for an introductory college physics class. The treatment is algebra-based, with optional sections of calculus applications. This book is part of the Light and Matter series of introductory physics textbooks.
