9780122561900: Acoustics: Basic Physics, Theory and Methods

The book is devoted to the very basis of acoustics and vibro-acoustics. The physics of the phenomena, the analytical methods and the modern numerical techniques are presented in a concise form. Many examples illustrate the fundamental problems and predictions (analytic or numerical) and are often compared to experiments. Some emphasis is put on the mathematical tools required by rigorous theory and reliable prediction methods. Key features include: a series of practical problems, which reflect the content of each chapter; reference to the major treatises and fundamental recent papers; and current computing techniques, used in problem solving.

Review:

Praise for the Book " This is a truly remarkable book...The aims of the authors clearly have been to provide their students with, first, the fundamental theoretical physics background which they need, and then with the knowledge of the most up-to-date mathematical techniques that they can use to produce practically useful answers to real problems...What is perhaps more impressive to me about this book is its constant adhesion throughout to the laws of physics and the logic of natural philosophy. Although the development is largely mathematical, the real physics of the problem being dealt with is always taken into account, explicitly or implicitly, and rigorously." --Prof. P.E. Doak, Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton, UK, Editor-in-Chief of JSV, in his review of the French edition, JSV (1995) "I was very much impressed...All authors are contemporary experts on the subject." --Prof. P.E. Doak, Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton, UK, Editor-in-Chief of JSV "The approach is more up to date than in many other texts and so this book will be useful for those who apply theoretical and numerical methods to acoustic propagation and radiation problems... this book will be useful to students of theoretical acoustics, and researchers interested in boundary element methods and sound radiation from vibrating structures." --S. A. L. Glegg, Journal of Sound and Vibration, (2000) 234(5), 911-914

About the Author:

Paul Filippi is a Directeur de Recherche at the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in Marseille and an editorial board memeber for the Journal of Sound and Vibration. He has been teaching courses in Acoustics in France since the early seventies, besides having studied and taught in the U.S. He received a degree in Physics in 1958, at the Universite de Provence, in Marseille. He started working on Acoustics and Vibrations in 1959 as a Stagiaire de Recherche at the Centre de Recherche Scientifique Industrielle et Maritime in Marseille, a laboratory depending on theCentre National de le Recherche Scientifique. He obtained his Doctorate of Sciences degree (the highest national university diploma in France) in 1968. He was in charge of the Diplome d'Etude Approfondies d'Acoustique at the Universite de la Mediterranee from 1986 to 1995. He is now Directeur de Recherche at the Laboratoire de Mecanique et d'Acoustique (CNRS) in Marseille. Aime Bergassoli has been teaching courses in Acoustics in France since the early seventies, besides having studied and taught in the U.S. He graduated from Ecole Saint-Cyr and then, in 1953, from Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Electricite de Paris, one of the most well known engineering schools in France. He entered the Laboratoire de Mecanique et d'Acoustique (CNRS) in Marseille in 1964 as a Research Engineer and retired in 1983. He worked on propagation and diffraction problems related to environmental Acoustics and on guided waves phenomena related to building Acoustics. Dominique Habault has been teaching courses in Acoustics in France since the early seventies, besides having studied and taught in the U.S. She graduated from the Universite de Provence,(Marseille) in Applied Mathematics in 1976 and in Acoustics (Doctorat de Troisieme Cycle) in 1979. She entered the Laboratoire de Mecanique et d'Acoustique (CNRS) in Marseille in 1980, where she is now Directeur de Recherche. She works on acoustic wave propagation and diffraction, and on fluid/structure interactions. She obtained her Doctorat es Sciences (the highest national university diploma in France) in 1984. She created the third-year specialization Acoustique et Vibrations Industrielles at the Ecole Superieure de Mecanique de Marseille. She is involved in Acoustics teaching at the Universite de le Mediterranee since 1983. Jean-Pierre Lefebvre has been teaching courses in Acoustics in France since the early seventies, besides having studied and taught in the U.S. He graduated from the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Physique in Marseille, in 1970. He entered the Laboratoire de Mecanique et d'Acoustique (CNRS) in Marseille, in 1973. He is now the Directeur de Recherche. He obtained his Doctorat es Sciences (the highest national university diploma in France) in 1981. He is involved in acoustic imaging and related inverse problems, mainly for biomedical and material applications.
