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 International Definition.

To find any term, use the alphabetic or topic links at the top of all our pages.

Listing terms alphabetically means related terms may be spread around the site, so we include links where appropriate, to take you directly to related terms or to a major topic page, where similar terms are grouped together.
