This thoroughly revised and long awaited new edition builds on the success of the 1991 third edition. This classic reference text considers the theory and practice of sound behaviour in closed spaces; a key area for acoustical engineers worldwide. It is of particular interest to those working on auditoria and will therefore stand as an excellent complement to Barron's Auditorium Acoustics. This new edition includes important new material on the growth of digital technology and sound intensity.

Preface to the fourth edition:

Almost a decade has elapsed since the third edition and during this period
many new ideas and methods have been introduced into room acoustics. I
therefore welcome the opportunity to prepare a new edition of this book
and to include the more important of those developments, while also introducing
new topics which were not dealt with in earlier editions.

In room acoustics, as in many other technical fields, the digital computer
has continued its triumphant progress; nowadays hardly any acoustical
measurements are carried out without using a computer, allowing previously
inconceivable improvements in accuracy and rapidity. Therefore, an
update of the chapter on measuring techniques (Chapter 8) was essential.
Furthermore, the increased availability of computers has opened new ways
for the computation and simulation of sound fields in enclosures. These
have led to better and more reliable methods in the practical design of halls;
indeed, due to its flexibility and low cost, sound field simulation will probably
replace the conventional scale model in the near future. Moreover, by
simulation it can demonstrated what a new theatre or concert hall which is
still on the drawing board will sound like when completed (‘auralisation’).
These developments are described in Chapter 9, which contains a separate
section on auralisation.

Also included in the new edition are sections on sound scattering and
diffuse reflection, on sound reflection from curved walls, on sound absorption
by several special arrangements (freely hanging porous material,
Schroeder diffusers) and on the measurement of diffuse reflections from
walls.

As in the earlier editions, no attempt is made to list all relevant publications
on room acoustics, and references are given only where I have adopted
material from another publication, or to enable the reader to obtain more
detailed information on a particular topic. I apologise for leaving many
important and interesting publications unmentioned.

The preparation of a new edition offered the chance to present some
subjects in a more comprehensive and logical way, to improve numerous
text passages and formulae and to correct errors and mistakes that inevitably
crept into the previous editions. I appreciate the suggestions of many
critical readers, who drew my attention to weak or misleading material
in the book. Most text passages, however, have been adopted from the
previous editions without any changes. Therefore I want to express again
my most sincere thanks to Professor Peter Lord of the University of Salford
for his competent and sensitive translation. Finally, I want to thank the
publishers for their cooperation in preparing this new edition.
