  2. Acoustics of Small Rooms

    By Mendel Kleiner, Jiri Tichy

    Much time is spent working out how to optimize the acoustics of large rooms, such as auditoria, but the acoustics of small rooms and environments can be just as vital. The expensive sound equipment of a recording studio or the stereo in a car or living room is likewise rendered useless if the...

  10. Acoustic Emission and Critical Phenomena

    From Structural Mechanics to Geophysics

    Edited by Alberto Carpinteri, Giuseppe Lacidogna

    The Acoustic Emission (AE) technique uses ad hoc transducers to detect AE events caused by crack growth in structures under external loading. This technique is similar to the one employed in earthquake control, where seismic waves reach the monitoring stations placed on the surface of the Earth....
