Course - Theoretical Acoustics - TT8307
TT8307 - Theoretical Acoustics
Lessons are not given in the academic year 2021/2022
The course is taught every second year. The subject contains acoustic waves in gas and fluid media, wave equations, reflection and transmission between two fluid media, from multi-layers and thin elastic plate. Furthermore, the course deals with room acoustics, reverberation and statistic aspects and vibration from source and vibrating bodies; effects of viscosity and other dissipations; scattering and diffractions; ray acoustics and nonlinear effects in acoustic wave propagations.
Knowledge: The candidate has: Good knowledge for -deep understanding of physical principles and theoretical treatment of some key issues and issues for use in audiology, noise control, room acoustics, marine acoustics and medical ultrasound; - methods for acoustic wave formation, reflection, scattering and absorption. Skill: The candidate can - model and analyze wave fields in acoustic media; - use physical principles and acoustic methods to analyze phenomena in audiology, noise reduction, room acoustics, marine acoustics and medical ultrasound. General competence: The student can gain experience in using theoretical methods to solve practical tasks related to acoustic applications.
