Fundamentals of General Linear Acoustics

Author: Finn Jacobsen
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781118636176
Release Date: 2013-06-04
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Acoustics deals with the production, control, transmission, reception, and effects of sound. Owing to acoustics being an interdisciplinary field, this book is intended to be equally accessible to readers from a range of backgrounds including electrical engineering, physics and mechanical engineering. This book introduces the fundamentals of acoustic wave motion. It addresses in a clear and systematic way some of the most difficult parts of acoustics for beginners, such as the widely different approximations due to the wide frequency range, the apparently arbitrary choice between the use of analytical solutions to the wave equation with boundary conditions, and the fundamentally different energy-based considerations used in noise control. As a result, it provides readers with a self-contained source of information on acoustics which can be used for self-study or as a graduate course text. Key features: Places an emphasis on detailed derivations based on the fundamental laws of physics and interpretations of the resulting formulas. Avoids, where possible, electrical and mechanical equivalent circuits, so as to make it accessible to readers with different backgrounds. Introduces duct acoustics, sound in enclosures, and sound radiation and scattering. Contains a set of appendices which includes material on signal analysis and processing as these tools are essential for the modern acoustician.

Jeder Kraftsportler kennt das Problem, dass er nach Wochen des intensiven Trainings plötzlich ein Plateau erreicht. Die Trainingsreize regen seine Muskeln nicht zu weiterem Wachstum an, und der Sportler erzielt keine Fortschritte mehr. Wenn er nun sein Trainingsprogramm nicht verändert, sodass die Muskeln neuen Belastungen ausgesetzt werden, wird er seine Leistungsfähigkeit nicht weiter steigern können. Programmgestaltung im Krafttraining beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, wie ein effektives Trainingsprogramm gestaltet werden muss, um kontinuierlich Fortschritte zu erzielen. Das Buch beschreibt detailliert die Mechanik des Trainingsprozesses, beginnend bei der grundlegenden Physiologie der Adaptation. Spezifische Trainingspläne für Einsteiger, geübte und sehr erfahrene Kraftsportler helfen dabei, die gesteckten Ziele zu erreichen. Dieses bewährte und komplett aktualisierte Standardwerk ist ein Muss für alle, die Hanteltraining betreiben oder unterrichten, für Gewichtheber, Kraftdreikämpfer oder CrossFitter und ihre Trainer, aber auch für Athleten anderer Sportarten, die ihre Leistung im Krafttraining verbessern wollen.
