The science of sounds, teaching their nature, phenomena, and laws.
The effect of the environment on sounds. Indoors, the effect is caused by the materials used in construction and can range from 'acoustically dead' (no reverberation or echo) to 'acoustically live' (with a long reverberation time or many echoes). In churches, 'good' acoustics means at least one second of reverberation time and no echo. This causes musical sounds to blend together and permits good intelligibility for speaking with a minimum of amplification.
The science of sound and its perception, involving physics (oscillations, wave lengths, etc.), anatomy of the ear and brain, and psychology.
The science dealing with sound and it's physical properties. See also, psychoacoustics.
(1) the science of sound; (2) the art of optimizing sound in an enclosed space.
The behaviour of sound and its study. The acoustics of a room depend on its size and shape and the amount and position of sound-absorbing and reflecting material.
A science dealing with the study of sound waves.
The branch of physics that deals with sound.
The science of sound behavior. Also refers to a room; i.e.,"This room has good acoustics."
The science that studies sound waves and their propagation.
A term describing the action of sound in a given space.
Study of the performance of sound energy. Also the way in which sound energy performs in a given space.
The study of sound or the science of sound.
The science of sound propagation. It can also refer to the effect a given environment has on sound.
The science or study of sound.
science that studies the properties of sound. Sound propagation properties of seawater are important both for marine mammals as a means for sensing and communication, and for navigation, underwater detection, and research.
the science and application of acoustic energy.
the study of the physical properties of sound
a full-service acoustical engineering firm specializing in providing sound, vibration, and environmental studies for both private and public sector clients
The production, control, transmission, reception and effects of sound in any environment, such as a living room.
The effect of a room on music. Rooms are typically described as "dead" when they have a lot of sound absorbing stuff like drapes and heavy furniture in the room, which reduce the number of audible reflections (echoes). A room with bare concrete walls has tons of audible reflections and is extremely "live".
The study of sound and its interaction with the human hearing mechanism.
the science of sound; the resonant qualities of a concert hall
the study of sound and sound waves. Ocean scientists use acoustic technology to determine their position, map the sea floor, and to track marine animals.
The characteristics, such as how sound is reflected and absorbed, that acoustically differentiate one environment from another, such as a living room from a concert hall.
The term for the way sound travels and reverberates through a building or venue.
the science of sound and how it’s produced
The study of sound. Term found in About the Voice: Acoustics 101.
is the branch of physics concerned with examining the properties of sound.
The science of the nature and character of sound. "acropolis", Literally, the high point of a Greek city, frequently serving as refuge in time of war. The best known is the Acropolis of Athens.
Acoustics is the science of sound, including its production, transmission and effects. The acoustics of a room are those qualities that together determine its character with respect to the perception of sound.
The physical science dealing with how sound is produced, propagated, manipulated and perceived. See also: Room Acoustics
A branch of physics that is devoted to studying the sound.
The science relating to thecreation and dissipation of sound waves. The way in which sound productionis affected by the physical properties of the room or chamber in which they areproduced.
The area of study which deals with the behaviour of sound. Also the effect a given environment has on sound.
The scientific study of sound, especially of its generation, transmission, and reception.
A term from physics used to describe the sound produced by of sonic waves within a performance space.
How sound moves in a room depends on its size and shape and the amount and position of sound-absorbing and reflecting material.
the scientific study of sounds and sound waves.
Sound is simply vibrating air. How fast, how much, and when the air is vibrated, determines what we will ultimately hear as sound. The science of this process is called acoustics.
The study of sound behavior. In the context of this site, acoustics is broadened to include sound behaviour in buildings as well as noise and noise control. See also: Wiki Definition
the science of sound, the effect a given space has on the character of a sound. a field of work applying mathematics, mechanics and art to the sound characteristics of a given space.
The degree of sound emitted from the transducer.
qualities that evaluate the ability of a theater to clearly transmit sounds from the stage to the audience.
The science of sound. In housing, acoustical materials used to keep down noise within a room or to prevent it from passing through walls.
The degree of sound. The nature, cause, and phenomena of the vibrations of elastic bodies; which vibrations create compressional waves or wave fronts which are transmitted through various media, such as air, water, wood, steel, etc.
Pertaining to sound, the sense of hearing or the science of sound. Often used to refer to the quality of the sound environment.
The study of sound. The science of production, effects, and transmission of sound waves through various mediums and the effects of absorption, diffraction, interference, reflection, and refraction.
The science of sound, which includes its creation, transmission and effects.
The science of sound and sound control.
The science of sound dealing with the production, effects, and transmission of sound waves through various mediums. Includes the effects of reflection, refraction, diffraction, absorption, and interference.
The science of sound. Also, referring to the acoustical character of venues and spaces.
the manner in which sound is transmitted, reflected, absorbed or dispersed. The term acoustics is generally used when describing the nature of sounds in specific rooms.
Acoustics is a branch of physics and is the study of sound (mechanical waves in gases, liquids, and solids). A scientist who works in the field of acoustics is an acoustician. The application of acoustics in technology is called acoustical engineering.
