Course specific prerequisites

Basic course in acoustics (e.g. Introduction to audio technology and acoustics)

Aim

The course's aim is deepening the students’ theoretical and practical knowledge of electroacoustics such as the design of loudspeakers and microphones.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • Design electroacoustic transducers such as microphones and loudspeakers using electroacoustic analogies
  • Design and use of loudspeakers
  • Use of up to-date measurement system to determine the electroacoustic properties of electrodynamic devices

Content

The course contains material on the following topics:
  • Fundamentals of electroacoustical and electromechanical analogies
  • Coupling of mechanic, acoustic and electric systems
  • Radiation: radiation impedance and impedance matching
  • Electroacoustic transducers for audio: electrodynamic and condenser microphones, electrodynamic loudspeaker drivers, and loudspeaker enclosures

Organisation

The course comprises the following learning activities: ten lectures, seven in-class exercises, and one laboratory task.

Literature

Custom material (available at course pages at http://www.ta.chalmers.se/education/course-materials/electroacoustics/)

Examination including compulsory elements

Written exam and approved laboratory assignment
