Acoustical Society of America: Suggested Experiments for Laboratory Courses in Acoustics and Vibrations by Vernon M. Albers
Extensively revised from the first edition, this manual is the Acoustical Society of America's response to the critical need for a guide to aid colleges and universities in setting up meaningful and modern experiments in acoustics. Twenty-seven experiments contributed by twenty-three specialists cover the areas of measurement and analysis of sound, vibrations, musical acoustics, transducers, room acoustics, underwater acoustics, and audiometry and masking. These experiments will be useful and interesting not only for science departments—such as engineering and physics—but also for departments outside of the sciences—such as speech and hearing, music, psychology, and architecture. Application of this material also extends to envioronmental studies, ocean engineering, and various aspects of biological and medical programs.
