This up-to-date second edition provides a comprehensive examination of the theory and application of Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) in acoustics and vibration. Complete with examples and data taken from real problems this unique book also explores the influence of computers on SEA and emphasizes computer based SEA calculations. In addition to a discussion of the relationship between SEA and other procedures used in response estimation, Theory and Application of Statistical Energy Anlaysis, Second Edition, explores the basic relationships between model and wave descriptions of systems.
The development of Statistical Energy Analysis; energy description of vibrating systems; Energy sharing by coupled systems; The estimation of response statistics in Statistical Energy Analysis; Applications of SEA; Modelling the system; Evaluating the mode count; Evaluating the damping loss factor; Evaluating the coupling loss factor; Evaluating the input power; Solving for the energy distribution; Evaluating the dynamical response variables; Transient SEA; An example; References; Appendix A
