Sample text

This is a helpful effect for reducing the effect of environmental noise nuisance. 21. This effect can often happen on summer �1 evenings and results in a greater sound level at a given distance than predicted by the inverse square law. This behavior is often responsible for the pop concert effect where people living some distance away from the concert �2 experience noise disturbance whereas people living nearer the concert do not experience the same level of noise. Refraction can also occur at the boundaries between liqVelocity2 Medium2 uids at different temperatures, such as water, and in some cases the level of refraction can result in total internal reflection.

17. The effect of the boundaries is merely to concentrate the sound power of the source into a smaller range of angles. 30. 17 The inverse square law for sound at boundaries. 32 can be applied to any source of sound which directs its sound energy into a restricted solid angle which is less than a sphere. Obviously the presence of boundaries is one means of restriction, but other techniques can also achieve the same effect. For example, the horn structure of brass instruments results in the same effect.

Because the speakers are being fed the same signal, but are spatially disparate, they act like several related sources and so are correlated. 11 shows two different situations. n Uncorrelated sound sources: In this situation the sound comes from several sources which are unrelated. For example, it may come from two different instruments, or from the same source but with a considerable delay due to reflections. In the first case the different instruments will be generating different waveforms and at different frequencies.
