The problem of acoustic wave propagation in a tube provides a starting point for the study of thermoacoustic phenomena, which can be analyzed in detail using hydrodynamics. A thermodynamic approach has elucidated various applications of thermoacoustic phenomena. The thermoacoustical perspective unifies these two approaches through acoustical energy flows and facilitates the development of thermoacoustic heat engines.
