Acoustics: Sound Fields and Transducers
Long-awaited update and expansion of a widely recognised classic in the field by pioneering acoustics expert, Leo L. Beranek
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, this new book retains and expands on the detailed acoustical fundamentals included in the original whilst adding practical formulas and simulation methods for practising professionals.
Benefitting from Beranek's lifetime experience as a leader in the field and co-author Tim Mellow's cutting-edge industry experience, Acoustics: Sound Fields and Transducers is a modern classic to keep close to hand in the lab, office and design studio.
