Acoustic Metamaterials: Negative Refraction, Imaging, by Richard V. Craster,Sébastien Guenneau

By Richard V. Craster,Sébastien Guenneau

concerning the e-book: This ebook is the 1st accomplished evaluate on acoustic metamaterials; novel fabrics that may manage sound waves in astounding methods, which come with collimation, focusing, cloaking, sonic screening and striking transmission. It covers either experimental and theoretical points of acoustic and elastic waves propagating in dependent composites, with a spotlight on powerful homes linked to damaging refraction, lensing and cloaking. such a lot similar books within the box handle electromagnetic metamaterials and concentrate on numerical equipment, and little (or no) experimental part. every one bankruptcy can be authored through an said professional, among the subjects coated might be experimental effects on non-destructive imaging, cloaking via floor water waves, flexural waves in skinny plates. functions in scientific ultrasound imaging and modeling of metamaterials might be emphasised too. The e-book can function a reference for researchers who desire to construct an effective starting place of wave propagation during this classification of novel materials.

Loudspeaker Handbook

The second one variation of Loudspeaker guide follows an analogous normal outlines because the hugely profitable first version and has been augmented and up-to-date in lots of components of know-how. such a lot amazing are the advancements in large-scale, programmable line arrays, disbursed mode loudspeakers, and ultrasonic-based audio transduction.

The Technology of Binaural Listening (Modern Acoustics and Signal Processing)

This e-book studies at the program of complicated versions of the human binaural listening to procedure in sleek expertise, between others, within the following parts:  binaural research of aural scenes, binaural de-reverberation, binaural caliber review of audio channels, loudspeakers and function areas, binaural perceptual coding, binaural processing in listening to aids and cochlea implants, binaural structures in robots, binaural/tactile human-machine interfaces, speech-intelligibility prediction in rooms and/or multi-speaker eventualities.

Fundamentals of Sound and Vibration, Second Edition

A superior creation to Sound and Vibration: No Formal history NeededThis moment variation of basics of Sound and Vibration covers the actual, mathematical and technical foundations of sound and vibration at audio frequencies. It provides Acoustics, vibration, and the linked sign processing at a degree appropriate for graduate scholars or practising engineers with having no earlier formal education within the box.

Sonochemistry and the Acoustic Bubble

Sonochemistry and the Acoustic Bubble presents an advent to the best way ultrasound acts on bubbles in a liquid to reason bubbles to break down violently, resulting in localized 'hot spots' within the liquid with temperatures of 5000° celcius and less than pressures of a number of hundred atmospheres. those severe stipulations produce occasions akin to the emission of sunshine, sonoluminescence, with a life of below a nanosecond, and loose radicals that may begin a bunch of various chemical reactions (sonochemistry) within the liquid, all at room temperature.
