Acoustics of Buildings: including Acoustics of Auditoriums and Sound-proofing of Rooms

  title={Acoustics of Buildings: including Acoustics of Auditoriums and Sound-proofing of Rooms},
  author={Floyd Rowe Watson},
THE acoustics of buildings is a subject which has always possessed importance, but with the increasing size of public buildings and the congestion of our urban populations, it has assumed much greater importance in recent decades. Though a good deal has been written on this subject, there are few books which present the problems to be solved in a lay form suitable for those not possessed of scientific attainments. Prof. Watson has succeeded in producing a volume which should prove of great…

Significance We establish accurate microstructure-dependent cross-property relations for composite materials that link effective elastic and electromagnetic wave characteristics to one another,
Effective elastic wave characteristics of composite media
We derive exact expressions for effective elastodynamic properties of two-phase composites in the long-wavelength (quasistatic) regime via homogenized constitutive relations that are local in space.
