Module overview

This module provides an introduction to the basic elements of acoustics for the purpose of meeting the fundamental needs of practising engineers. This module provides the knowledge and tools to understand and predict the behaviour of complex acoustical systems, including the behaviour of sound propagation in free field and simple bounded environments, and the characteristics of source radiation. It provides the fundamental knowledge required in order to study a range of other modules on more specialist aspects of acoustics. A knowledge of mathematics equivalent to that obtained from a 1st year undergraduate engineering degree is required.
