Acoustic Glossary


Sound and Vibration Terms and Definitions ...
Home Page

The world of acoustics is overflowing with terms and parameters. This glossary is for visitors and customers who come across a term they do not know, or are not sure about. We explain what the term 'means' in the practical world and where appropriate we also include the IEC and/or the ASA definitions.

Listing terms alphabetically means related terms may be spread around the site, so we have included links where appropriate, to our pages devoted to the major Topics.

So you can look up items using our Alphabetic or Topic links at the top of every page, or enter a word or phrase into our Google site search.
