Architectural Acoustics presents a complete technical overview of the field, from basic concepts to specific design advice. Beginning with a brief history of the field, it reviews the fundamentals of acoustics, human perception and reaction to sound, acoustic noise measurements and noise metrics, and environmental noise. In-depth treatment is given to the theoretical principles and practical applications of wave acoustics, sound transmission, vibration and vibration isolation, and noise transmission in floor systems and mechanical systems. Chapters on specific design problems demonstrate how to apply the theory, including treatment of multifamily dwellings, office buildings, rooms for speech, sound reinforcement systems, rooms for music, multipurpose rooms, auditoriums, sanctuaries, studios and listening rooms. Detailed figures throughout illustrate the practical applications of acoustic principles, showing how to implement design ideas in actual structures. This compendium of theoretical and practical design information brings all the relevant concepts, equations, techniques and specific design problems together in one place, covering both fundamentals and more advanced material in thorough detail. Practicing engineers will find it an invaluable reference for their daily work, while advanced students will appreciate its sound treatment of the basic building blocks of architectural design. Considered the most complete resource in the field - includes the concepts, equations, insights and solutions engineers in the area need to reference and verify on a daily basis Covers a broad cross-section of topics, insights and problems to help engineers solve the wide range of acoustic challenges and issues they meet in design and consultancy work Provides a reliable and complete dip-in reference for refreshing knowledge of concepts, validating the use of particular calculations or solutions in specific scenarios, and reviewing critical assumptions New to this edition: problems and solutions for students and developing professionals, more specific problems and case studies, and coverage of high tech spaces such as laboratories, as well as general update throughout
