Computer Programs Supporting Instruction in Acoustics
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Acoustics is a field of study not easily understood and laboratory experiments which might shed light on problems in acoustics are complex and expensive to accomplish. Computers have become a valuable tool in many fields of study in order to examine problems which would be difficult and expensive, if not impossible to study using traditional methods. This thesis is an extension of work previously completed by Thomas Green to support instruction utilizing the text, Fundamentals of Acoustics, Third Edition, John Wiley Sons, Inc., by Coppens, Frey, Kinsler, and Sanders. The fourth edition of Fundamentals of Acoustics is currently in revision and the computer programs explained in this thesis will be used to support it. All programs utilize MATLAB, a widely accepted programming language for accomplishing numerical analysis of engineering problems. The benefit of these programs will be very dependant on students using them in conjunction with the text.
