ARCH 4890 - Engineering Acoustics


Introductory materials of engineering acoustics for students with basic knowledge in mathematics (at least one level of first-year college). Much of the course material is taken from the textbook “Acoustics for Engineers” by Blauert and Xiang (2nd Ed.). The course includes mechanic and acoustic oscillations, the wave equations in fluids,  governing equations for horns and ducts, spherical sound sources and arrays, piston membranes, diffraction and scattering, dissipation, reflection, refraction and absorption, isolation of air- and structure-borne sounds, noise propagation and noise control. B.S. and B.Arch. students can only reqister for the 4000 level of this course and M.S.Arch. Acoustics students must register only for the 6000 level of this course.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: College-level calculus, complex functions, and partial differential equations are prerequisite.

When Offered: Fall term annually.
