Design and construct audiophile-quality sonic environments of all sizes--from home theaters and project studios to large-scale recording studios. Thoroughly revised to include new acoustical design techniques, Master Handbook of Acoustics, Sixth Edition, explains the art and science of room acoustics and architecture by combining theoretical instruction with matter-of-fact engineering advice.
Written by renowned experts in the field and refined through several editions, this fully updated classic describes the fundamentals of acoustical properties, as well as the latest solutions to acoustical problems. Throughout, this authoritative text provides clear explanations, describes hands-on techniques, and features numerous room designs that can be built as presented, or adapted to your particular needs.Understand how sound waves travel in free fields and in enclosed spaces Learn how human sound perception and psychoacoustics affect room design Calculate and predict reflections, reverberation times, and room modes Perform acoustical measurements and site surveys, and choose construction materials Design, build, and install treatment modules to optimize early reflections, reverberation, and diffusion Design and build home theaters, home studios, control rooms, recording studios, and other acoustically sensitive spaces Reduce HVAC noise levels, and achieve excellent sound isolation with proven wall, window, and door designs Understand the acoustics of auditoriums and concert halls Utilize the supplied cost-effective plans and specifications for a variety of recording and listening rooms

"Astonishing how this treatise … still retains a place of preeminence in modern acoustical literature." — Electronics Industry
The major work by a Nobel Laureate who was among the greatest of 19th-century physicists is a standard compendium which has served generations of acousticians, physicists, and mathematical physicists as the classic coverage of all aspects of sound, both experimental and theoretical.
The book sums up previous research and offers original contributions of Lord Rayleigh. It is, therefore, not only a reference book, but a book of great practical utility for all readers concerned with scientific aspects of sound. Volume 1 covers harmonic vibrations, systems with one degree of freedom, vibrating systems in general, transverse vibrations of strings, longitudinal and torsional vibrations of bars, vibrations of membranes and plates, curved shells and plates, and electrical vibrations. Volume II covers aerial vibrations, vibrations in tubes, reflection and refraction of plane waves, general equations, theory of resonators, Laplace's functions and acoustics, spherical sheets of air, vibration of solid bodies, and facts and theories of audition.
Long before they can speak, babies are listening. And with this book of fourteen everyday sounds, babies and toddlers are encouraged to interact with parents, caregivers, and the noisy world around them in ways that widen their sensory awareness and expand their vocabulary. From a tweeting bird to clanging pots, a beeping phone to honking cars, the splash! of water to the sound of a kiss--mmmwah!--this book is full of the sounds that fill a baby's day. Perfect for little hands to grasp, this is a delightful stand-alone or a lovely companion to Baby Signs.
