Chapter Four

Acoustic components

Abstract

The acoustic elements—acoustic mass, acoustic compliance, acoustic resistance—are treated in detail. Examples of mixed elements are given. Next come the reflection and radiation of sound—reflection from a plane; radiation from a pulsating sphere; radiation from a monopole source; radiation from a multiple source; radiation from a dipole source; radiation from an oscillating sphere; and radiation from multiple point sources vibrating with different phases. Directivity index is treated next. A section on radiation impedances follows for: pulsating sphere; oscillating sphere; and circular piston. The chapter ends on viscous and thermal losses, particularly in lossy tubes.
