Acoustics of long spaces: theory and design guidance

Long spaces, such as railway stations, urban streets, road tunnels and transition spaces within buildings, present acute acoustical problems. Acoustics experts recognise a need for better understanding of the behaviour of sound in such spaces, particularly the safety implications for public spaces, as classic acoustical theory is often not applicable due to the extreme dimensions involved.
Dr. Kang is acknowledged as an authority in the research of these problems, and in this book he addresses the need for accurate prediction models and calculation formulae, and provides practical design guidelines drawn from case study materials. Acoustics of long spaces will be a valuable tool for the designer, engineer, urban planner and environmental consultant.
