In this procedure the mechanical or acoustical vibrating system is converted into the analogous electrical circuit. Accordingly this book has been written with the object of presenting the principles of dynamical analogies to the for the past acoustic transducers. plex arrangements of multielement systems. The author The author wishes to acknowledge the interest given by Mr. Although not generally so considered the electrical circuit is the most common and widely exploited vibrating system. The subject matter is developed in stages from the simple element through to comrectilineal. By means of analogies the knowledge in electrical circuits may be applied to the solution of problems in mechanical and acoustical systems. The text assumes on the part of the reader a familiarity with the elements of alternating circuit theory and physics. Olson .

The mechanical engineer is interested in the development of various mechanisms or vibrating systems involving masses. springs and friction. Acoustical systems in which the dimensions are small compared to the wavelength are vibrations in a single dimension. this operational method can be applied to any analytically similar system. Vibrations in one dimension occur in mechanical systems made up of mechanical elements. ^ The term "single dimension" implies that the movement or variation occurs along a path. In an electrical circuit the number of degrees of freedom is equal to the number of independent closed meshes or circuits. springs and brakes. The number of independent variables required to completely specify is the motion of every part of a vibrating system a measure of the is number needed of degrees of freedom of the system. the development of vibrat- ing systems and the control of sound vibrations. Electrical circuit theory is the branch of electromagnetic theory which deals with electrical oscillations in linear electrical networks. Mathematically the elements electric circuit in an electrical network are the coeffi- cients in the differential equations describing the network. constituent parts of a circuit.

The response of a dynamical system to a unit force is called the indicial admittance of the system. It is denoted by A(t). A{t) represents the current, linear velocity, angular velocity, or volume current when a unit electromotive force, force, torque or pressure is suddenly applied in a
system which was
initially at rest.

In the Heaviside calculus the differential equations are reduced to an algebraic form by replacing the operator dj dt by the operator p and the
operation / dt by 1/^.

piled which serve for operational calculus the
