Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Aim

Many electronics engineer deal with communication systems where sound is an integral part, such as virtual reality systems, voice recognition systems and sound playback systems. The aim of the course is to give the students an overview of the area and some fundamental theoretical knowledge in order for them to have basic understanding of involving sound and vibration and be able to handle simple problems involving these.

Content

The course comprises the following parts:
Fundamentals of acoustic
* Sound pressure, particle velocity, sound sources
* Array technology
* Radiation impedance, intensity and power
* Hearing
* Basic psychoacoustics with regard to audio systems
Sound fields in rooms
* Concepts of geometrical, statistical and physi-cal acoustics
* Subjective aspects of room acoustics
* Audio technology
* Sound recording
* Sound reproduction
* Microphones, construction principles
* Loudspeakers, construction principles
* Headphones, construction principles
* Digital sound recording and reproduction
Sound and vibration insulation
* Transmission loss and vibration loss
The course also comprises in-class exercises and two lab exercises.

Literature

Book such as: Kinsler et al. "Fundamentals of Acoustics", John Wiley and Sons, or similar.

Examination

Written examination.
