Summary

This powerful text continues with the same fundamental aim as the previous two editions to not present, but to teach the fundamental concepts of acoustics to students in the speech-language and hearing science.

Features:

  • Description of the universality of the inverse square law of physical phenomena other than sound
       
  • Introduction of constructive and destructive interference concepts
       
  • Examination of the relation between displacement nodes and antinodes, and pressure nodes and antinodes, in consideration of acoustic tube standing waves
       
  • Inclusion of differences in sound absorption coefficients as a function of frequency
       
  • Expanded discussion of total absorption, including sabine and metric sabine
       
  • Discussion of the relationship between absorption and reverberation time to highlight their practical application to optimal an substandard room acoustics
