Acoustical engineering applies sound and vibration theory in practical terms, addressing the manipulation and control of sound to ensure the comfort, safety and productivity of those inhabiting a particular environment. Engineers in this area need to learn and reference the concepts and principles on which fundamental acoustic design practices are based, and understand why, when and how to use particular calculations, equations and techniques.

Beginning with an overview of the subject’s history, Architectural Acoustics reviews the fundamentals of acoustics and noise before moving onto the theory and practical applications of wave acoustics, sound transmission and vibration. Chapters on specific design problems follow, along with material on sound system modeling, ray tracing and auralization. This compendium of theoretical and practical design information brings together all the important concepts, equations, insights and specific design problems, covering material in depth at basic and advanced levels.
