Propagation of acoustic waves

EE-549

Enseignant(s) :

Martin Vincent

Langue:

English

Summary

Acoustics course at MSc level focusing mainly on audible acoustics, extended to wave propagation in solids and moving fluids, and also to infra and ultrasound fields, in order to provide a broad view of the world of sound.

Content

1 ' Overview of the main current themes in acoustics

2 ' Physical acoustics (basic equations of constitution)

3 ' Radiating vibratory structures (with membrane and flexion waves)

4 ' Acoustic/structure interactions (within acoustic/structure/fluid interactions)

5 ' Standard analytical methods and more recent numerical modelling methods (finite elements, boundary equations, rays, ')

6 ' Optimisation and inverse problems (active control, acoustic imaging ')

 

The first sessions set the framework and then evolve towards a less structured itinerary across the various acoustic domains in order to provide a global view of the subject, while providing practical skills. All the above chapters cannot be covered within the course so the content  is adapted to the students' interests.

 

Keywords

Acoustics, Radiation, Vibration

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Pre-requisite

Mastery of the foundation knowledge in physics and mathematics acquired at B.Sc. level (L3)

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Teaching methods

1 ' Lectures punctuated with mini-calculations by the participants concerning the order of magnitude of the quantities dealt with. Constant checking of full comprehension by M.Sc. student participants.

2 ' Tutorials with supervision of exercises and problems

Expected student activities

1 ' High degree of concentration  during the sessions

2 ' Assignments to assimilate the content 2h/week

3 -  Assignments and personal reflexion on subtleties and in anticipation of future exercices and problems (at least 1h/week)

 

The reward for the efforts is considerable as  it will result in the view from above coupled with concrete know-how mentioned above, which are expected fromM.Sc. graduates.

Assessment methods

1 ' Close supervision of the students' progress during the tutorials where they learn to take initiative

2 ' Final written assessment of knowledge acquired

Bibliography

1  - Mandatory: Coursebook

Elements d'acoustique générale

PPUR 2007

(written in French but the scientific developments are readable by non French-speakers)

2 - Important : reflexion on problems given the previous years

3  - For information and  motivation : scientific magazines centred on acoustics today, websites on the objects dealt with, some of them with animated images or films.
