Overview

The present book is a unique text and reference on the theory and applications of nonlinear acoustics. Individual chapters are written by leading experts on their respective subjects. The book combined the merits of a graduate textbook format with the scholarly appeal of a research monograph for physicists and engineers.

The first half of the book develops physical concepts, mathematical models, and classical methods of solution. Benchmark experiments are also described. The second half covers special topics and applications, both theory and experiment.

Audience: Graduate students in engineering and physics. Research scientists and engineers working at universities, Navy labs, NASA, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and national labs such as Los Alamos and Sandia.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Delineates theory and applications of nonlinear acoustics, combining the merits of a graduate text format with the scholarly approach of material for physicists and engineers. Early chapters develop physical concepts, mathematical models, and classical methods of solution, and describe benchmark experiments. Later chapters explore special topics and applications in theory and experiment. Basic theory and model equations are developed from first principles, and there is material on the history of nonlinear acoustics and the Burgers equations, and on analytical, perturbation, and numerical methods of solution.

Meet the Author

Mark F. Hamilton and David T. Blackstock are Professors of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. Active in the series of International Symposia on Nonlinear Acoustics (ISNA), they were co-chairs of the 12th ISNA, held in 1990, and editors of the proceedings Frontiers of Nonlinear Acoustics (Elsevier). They have received various awards from the Acoustical Society of America for their research in nonlinear acoustics.Hamilton's interest in nonlinear acoustics began with his doctoral work under F.H. Fenlon at Pennsylvania State University. As the Acoustical Society's F.V. Hunt Postdoctoral Fellow in 1983—1984, he spent the year at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Bergen in Norway. He followed this with a second year of postdoctoral study at Applied Research Laboratories of the University of Texas at Austin. He joined the Mechanical Engineering faculty of UT at Austin in 1985. He is well know in nonlinear acoustics for his research on sound beams, waveguides, computational methods, and waves in solids.Blackstock also began his research on nonlinear acoustics as a doctoral student, in F.V. Hunt's laboratory at Harvard University. He spent the decade of the 1960s in Rochester, New York: three years at General Dynamics/Electronics and seven years in theUniversity of Rochester's Electrical Engineering Department. Since 1970 he has been at the University of Texas at Austin. Currently he holds a joint appointment at Applied Research Laboratories and the Mechanical Engineering Department. His research in nonlinear acoustics has been on the Burgers equation, weak shock theory, and various applications such as sonic boom, finite-amplitude noise, andmedical ultrasonics.
