Postgraduate course

Acoustic Transducers

Objectives and Content

Transduction theory, equivalence, quadrupol-, discrete element- and distributed element models, piezoelectric materials, models for piezoelectric transducers, interaction with the sound field, methods for measurement and calibration, electric and acoustic matching, tranducer systems and arrays, construction and applications.

Learning Outcomes

To understand the principles and construction of acoustic transducers and to describe the corresponding sound field. The course is essential for work on the use of transducers in acoustic measurement systems in basic research in acoustics and ultrasonics as well as technological/industrial applications.

Grading Scale

The grading scale used is A to F. Grade A is the highest passing grade in the grading scale, grade F is a fail.
