Examiner:

Professor  Mendel Kleiner



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

The course is designed for students with a focus on electro acoustics, loudspeaker design, actuators, transducers and ultrasonics.

Goal

The students should finalise the course with a fundamental knowledge regarding electrical transducers for acoustics and vibration. Examples of such transducers are microphones, hydrophones, accelerometers, loudspeakers, vibrators and ultrasonic projectors. Design and use of such transducers is facilitated by the use of the theory of electroacoustical analogies.

Content

The course comprises the following parts:
Fundamentals
* Electroacoustical analogies
* Radiation impedance
* Horn couplers
Electroacoustic transducers
* Microphones, electrodynamic and condenser
* Loudspeakers, electrodynamic and electro-static
Ultrasonics
* Transducers, electrostatic and piezolelectric
* Industrial and medical sonar applications for airborne and underwater applications
The course also comprises a lab exercise.

Literature

Beranek, B.B., "Acoustics" and other literature.

Examination

Written examination.
