Overview

This book discusses the physics of vibrating systems, emphasizing mechanics rather than electrodynamics. Beginning with the basics of free and forced motions of a simple harmonic oscillator (both mechanical and electrical) it goes on to discuss vibrations in one-dimensional systems, such as strings and bars, and two-dimensional systems such as membranes and plates. The discussion of coupled systems includes strong as well as weak coupling, and presents both mechanical and electrical examples. The analysis includes nonlinear systems, dispersion, and other topics. The concluding third of the book discusses the propagation of sound in air; the radiation from various sources (points, planes, lines, baffled planes, and so forth); and the propagation of sound in various kinds and shapes of pipes.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book is designed to serve as a text for an introductory course in acoustics for physics or engineering students. … On the basis of its clear and concise exposition of a mix of basic and applied subject matter, I would recommend this book for consideration as a text in an introductory acoustics course. … I again wish to acknowledge the overall excellence of Principles of Vibration and Sound as a solid text for introductory acoustics." (Arnold Tubis, Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Vol. 116 (5), 2004)
