Predicting Outdoor Sound provides a scholarly yet practical
examination of the phenomena that affect outdoor sound close to the
ground and its prediction. It is devoted to bringing together
theories and data to give both researchers and practitioners the
basis for deciding which model to use in a given situation. The
book covers recent advances in theory, new and old empirical
schemes, available data and comparisons between theory and data.
Detailed case studies of predictions and their uses are
There are chapters on ground impedance models and data, methods
of measuring ground impedance, ground effects in homogenous
atmospheres, sound propagation in refracting and turbulent
atmospheres, sound propagation from moving sources, the performance
of outdoor noise barriers, the effects of tall vegetation and both
numerical and empirical methods for predicting the various
influences on outdoor sound.
International in its applications, and written by authors who
have been key in many of the recent advances, Predicting Outdoor
Sound is a definitive reference for the acoustic engineer.
