Techniques and Tools for Solving Acoustics Problems
This is the first book of its kind that describes the use of ANSYS ® finite element analysis (FEA) software, and MATLAB ® engineering programming software to solve acoustic problems. It covers simple text book problems, such as determining the natural frequencies of a duct, to progressively more complex problems that can only be solved using FEA software, such as acoustic absorption and fluid-structure-interaction. It also presents benchmark cases that can be used as starting points for analysis. There are practical hints too for using ANSYS software. The material describes how to solve numerous problems theoretically, and how to obtain solutions from the theory using MATLAB engineering software, as well as analyzing the same problem using ANSYS Workbench and ANSYS Mechanical APDL.

"... my students have found the book invaluable for learning how to use ANSYS Workbench for solving vibro-acoustics problems. The examples are numerous, detailed, well-chosen and complete with theoretical solutions. For these reasons and others, I believe ANSYS users will keep a copy of the book nearby and refer to it often."
