Long-awaited update and expansion of a widely recognised classic in the field by pioneering acoustics expert, Leo L. Beranek Builds upon Beranek's 1954 Acoustics classic by incorporating recent developments, practical formulas and methods for effective simulation Uniquely, provides the detailed acoustic fundamentals which enable better understanding of complex design parameters, measurement methods and data Brings together topics currently scattered across a variety of books and sources into one valuable reference Includes relevant case studies, real-world examples and solutions to bring the theory to life 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.

Noise and vibration control engineering : principles and applications by Leo Leroy, 1914- Beranek( Book )

25 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noise and Vibration Control Engineering moves on to discuss the basic components of noise control: active noise control techniques, sound absorbers, mufflers, enclosures, wrappings, barriers, walls, vibration isolators and vibration damping materials and their proper use in solving common noise and vibration control problems. The book shows how to control noise caused by gas flows, ventilation systems, machines, reciprocating engines and gears. Finally, it examines to what level noise must be reduced so as not to affect work performance, enjoyment of speech, radio, TV and music at home or in public spaces or to damage hearing
Concert halls and opera houses : music, acoustics, and architecture by Leo L Beranek( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated guide to one hundred of the world's important concert halls and opera houses examines their architecture and engineering and discusses their acoustical quality as judged by conductors and music critics. The descriptions and photographs will serve as a valuable guide for today's peripatetic performers and music lovers. With technical discussions relegated to appendices, the book can be read with pleasure by anyone interested in musical performance." "In addition, Beranek tells how composers adapt the style of their music to particular halls and how musicians adjust their playing to complement the acoustics. He also proposes a common language for musicians and acousticians." "The photographs (specially commissioned for this book) and architectural drawings (all to the same scale), together with modern acoustical data on each of the halls, provide a resource on the design of halls for presenting musical performances. Together with the technical appendices, the data and drawings will serve as an invaluable reference for architects and engineers involved in the design of spaces for the performance of music."--Jacket

Experiments in external noise reduction of light airplanes by Leo L Beranek( Book )

4 editions published in 1950 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noise measurements were made on standard light airplanes and on similar airplanes equipped with engine mufflers, propeller reduction gears, and propellers with various numbers of blades and blade shapes. The tests included sound-level recordings of take-offs and overhead flights at 100- and 500-foot altitude. They also included analyses of sound-frequency components with the airplane on the ground from a distance of 50 feet and at various positions around the airplane
