Architectural Acoustics offers a comprehensive overview of acoustical science at a level suitable for either advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate courses in architectural design and architectural engineering. The text is organized according to how sound interacts with built structures, going from simple geometries through complex building structures. The book begins with a brief but useful history of architecture and the role of acoustics, as well as overview of human perception of, sound, and then progresses through topics ranging from acoustic measurement, noise metrics and environmental noise, to sound in enclosed spaces, sound transmission in buildings, vibration and vibration isolation, and noise in mechanical systems. Architectural Acoustics also includes more advanced chapters on specific design problems, including treatment of multifamily dwellings, office buildings, sound reinforcement systems, rooms for music, multipurpose rooms, auditoriums, sanctuaries, and studios and listening rooms. Also covered is the theory loudspeaker systems and sound system modeling as well as in-depth presentation of computer modeling, ray tracing and auralization. * Comprehensive guide to the basics of acoustical science and its applications to architectural design. * Author is renowned expert engaged in acoustical engineering for 20 years * Covers the latest environmental regulations and health and safety research related to sound inside and outside of buildings.

Comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of principles, materials, and technologies Architectural Acoustics provides the vital information that architects, engineers, and all concerned with the built environment need to control and direct wanted or unwanted sounds within and around buildings. A team of internationally recognized experts presents the very latest information on acoustical materials, technologies, design criteria, and methods for a wide variety of applications, including airports and other transportation facilities; theaters, churches, and concert halls; classrooms, lecture halls, and libraries; music practice rooms and recording studios; sports venues; and all types of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. This comprehensive reference is one of the few books of its kind to include richly detailed case studies that demonstrate real-world applications of acoustic principles, materials, and methods. Nearly two hundred photos and illustrations further elucidate specific principles, applications, and techniques. Topics covered include: * Basic principles of architectural acoustics * Acoustical materials and methods * Building noise control applications

The application of good acoustic design can seem daunting to designers when trying to understand the often-complex physics of sound control. The ever-increasing number of standards and performance criteria that can be requested on new developments further complicates acoustics for architects. Architectural Acoustics, part of the PocketArchitecture series, provides the fundamental theory and understanding of acoustics and applications of effective detailing for specific building types and conditions in an accessible and clear technical guide. The book provides: a compact and understandable introduction to the fundamentals of building and architectural acoustics definitions of suitable acoustic performance criteria for a wide range of common buildings and room types guidance on specification and detailing of the most suitable construction types in North America and the UK. This book is both, a handy rule of thumb on acoustics for anyone involved in the design or construction of buildings, as well as an essential addition to any architect’s reference library.

Acoustics as a branch of physics involves heavy mathematics, and the practice of architectural acoustics involves knowledge of a broad range of subjects. For these reasons, many people believe that good acoustics are almost impossible to obtain and exist only in concert halls. With a solid understanding of the basics, however, rooms with good acoustics are not as hard to design and build as people might think. This work describes acoustics and the factors to be considered in constructing a room or building with good sound quality. Among the topics covered are intonation, tuning and temperaments of classical music, environmental noise, noise and vibration control, sound measurement, sound systems, acoustic models, and acoustical design for various settings and purposes, including acoustics for chamber music, synagogues, churches, and classrooms. The work looks at places like Clemens Theatre, Congress Hall, Binns Rehearsal Room, and Philharmonic Hall, to name just a few, as models of small and large buildings with excellent acoustics. Many diagrams and other illustrations enhance the text.

Unite the science of sound and the principles of design toenhance any space Architectural Acoustics Illustrated translates thequantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphiclanguage of architecture. This highly-visual guide includes over350 illustrations that outline the physics of sound and the bestdesign practices for limiting or mitigating noise in buildings byusing the latest in materials and techniques. Each chapter includesa summary checklist of design guidelines to help prevent mistakesand oversights, and the Instructor's website offers videoanimations demonstrating acoustical concepts. Designed as a "firstlook" at the interaction of sound and space, the book explains theprinciples of architectural acoustics and their practicalapplications, providing a comprehensive guide for designing withacoustics in mind. Architectural acoustics is more than just concert halls –it may determine building placement, division of interior space,exterior construction, and even siting. When addressed early in thedesign process, the resulting space can be free of unwanted soundand promote good hearing; if left unaddressed, the problems withthe space can lead to lawsuits and costly post-constructionremediation. Architectural Acoustics Illustrated helpsdesigners solve most acoustical problems in advance, by enablingreaders to: Understand the physical science underlying the behavior ofsound Consider the interactions of sound and space in the initialdesign approach Mitigate building sounds such as those produced by HVAC andplumbing with early design planning Design spaces for listening, and incorporate acoustics bestpractices into every plan The highly visual format of the book helps readers grasp complexconcepts quickly, and thorough discussion of each concept'sreal-world application ties the science directly into the designprocess. All design professionals need to have a fundamentalunderstanding of acoustics, and Architectural AcousticsIllustrated is a comprehensive, practical guide in aneasy-to-read format.
