Modellica the free modelling tool, first created the components of inside corrugated side truck trailer, looking at 14 Eigen values and FFT'ing continuous chunks of the time domain, per a lecture at the Knowles transducer website discussed in this book.

Used Proakis DSP book to get the matrices together and create two filter schemas - Normalized cross correlation and least mem squares. Useful book. Hbk Everest of course. I'm not much good at math, but I learned a lot from this and enjoy the dry humor ex: "The Beranek Effect" Highly comprehensive and there have been changes made to my stereo system as a result of reading this; I often refer back to it GW. Wonderful book, nothing else to say. Perhaps, if I really had to find a flaw in Beranek's book I would say that, after all these years, it would really appreciated if someone could re-edit this masterpiece with a more modern latex layout and fonts.

Wanna understand acoustics? Buy this book and perhaps Ingard's one. This is the book to get to learn about acoustics from one of its original founders of the science and engineering in the field. I prefer it to the later book jointly authored with Mellow but that is OK if you can't get this earlier edition.

Beranek is a good teacher and the ideas flow naturally, but succinctly. Equations are used only to inform, not intimidate.

One person found this helpful. Arrived on time; filled with engineering gibberish that I don't understand but the engineer I got it for seems to comprehend. This is a very good book, that really gives the reader insight into how electroacoustical transducers work.

Everybody working in the field of electroacoustics should have this book within reach. See all reviews from the United States. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
