This is an introductory course and participants need not have any prior knowledge of sound or vibration

This three-day course is intended for engineers and other technical personnel and managers who have a work-related need to understand basic acoustics concepts and how to measure and analyze sound. Each topic is illustrated by appropriate applications, in-class demonstrations, and worked-out numerical examples.

What You Will Learn

• How to make proper sound level measurements.

• How to analyze and report acoustic data.

• The basis of decibels (dB) and the A-weighting scale.

• How intensity probes work and allow near-field sound measurements.

• How to measure radiated sound power and sound transmission loss.

• How to use third-octave bands and narrow-band spectrum analyzers.

• How the source-path-receiver approach is used in noise control engineering.

• How sound builds up in enclosures like vehicle interiors and rooms.

Course Testimonials

"Great instructor made the course interesting and informative. Helped clear-up many misconceptions I had about sound and its measurement."

"Enjoyed the in-class demonstrations; they help explain the concepts. Instructor helped me with a problem I was having at work, worth the price of the course!"

Course Notes

Each student will receive a copy of the textbook, "The Science and Applications of Acoustics" by Daniel R. Raichel and you will receive a full set of detailed notes at the beginning of the class for future reference. You can add notes and more detail based on the in-class interaction. After the class, everyone will receive a certificate of completion. Please visit our website for more valuable information.
