Soundscape and the Built Environment

1st Edition

Jian Kang, Brigitte Schulte-Fortkamp
July 26, 2017

Soundscape Basics and Practical Implications Soundscape research represents a paradigm shift, as it involves human and social sciences and physical measurements to account for the diversity of soundscapes across countries and cultures. Moreover, it treats environmental sounds as a resource rather...

Aircraft Noise: Assessment, Prediction and Control

1st Edition

Oleksandr Zaporozhets, Vadim Tokarev, Keith Attenborough
March 31, 2017

Aircraft noise has adverse impacts on passengers, airport staff and people living near airports, it thus limits the capacity of regional and international airports throughout the world. Reducing perceived noise of aircraft involves reduction of noise at source, along the propagation path and at the...

Acoustics of Small Rooms

1st Edition

Mendel Kleiner, Jiri Tichy
March 31, 2017

Much time is spent working out how to optimize the acoustics of large rooms, such as auditoria, but the acoustics of small rooms and environments can be just as vital. The expensive sound equipment of a recording studio or the stereo in a car or living room is likewise rendered useless if the...

Acoustic Absorbers and Diffusers: Theory, Design and Application

3rd Edition

Trevor Cox, Peter D’Antonio
August 24, 2016

This definitive guide covers the design and application of absorbers and diffusers in acoustics. Surface diffusion is a relatively young subject area, and diffuser design, application and characterisation are often not well understood. Although there is greater knowledge of absorption, it is also...
