Abstract:

With the ending of American military involvement in the Indochina conflict it became appropriate to summarize the unclassified aspects of those investigations which might have a reference value to future scientific workers both in the civilian and military endeavors. The investigations of the Acoustical Working Group AWG, a committee of knowledgeable persons from various civilian and Department of Defense agencies responsible for performing acoustical studies relevant to the Indochina conflict, clearly fall in this category. They embrace, in general, the study of sound propagation, a subject important to noise abatement, hearing protection, and other ecological and environmental concerns. Some of these studies more than 50 formal reports were prepared in a period of five years also are significant in a general academic sense and as such have been selected to appear in this volume. The topics covered are data acquisition, reduction, analysis, acoustical propagation, and the characteristics of sound sources.
