Foundation of Statistical Energy Analysis in Vibroacoustics

A. Le Bot


This book deals with the statistical theory of sound and vibration. The foundation of statistical energy analysis is presented in detail. In the modal approach, an introduction to random vibration with application to complex systems having a large number of modes is provided. For the wave approach, the phenomena of propagation, group speed, and energy transport are extensively discussed. Particular emphasis is given to the emergence of diffuse field, the central concept of the theory. All important notions are gradually introduced—making the text self-contained—to lead the reader to the ultima ... More

Keywords: statistical energy analysis, random vibration, diffuse field, vibrational temperature, reverberation, statistical vibroacoustics, room acoustics, optical devices
