Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Get a basic knowledge of classical physics - oscillations, waves. Learn basic acoustic quantities. Study the physiological acoustics. Acquire knowledge about building acoustics, room acoustics, acoustic materials. Meet with electro-acoustic transducers. Summarize the acquired knowledge and skills.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


The subject belongs to a group of objects constituting the professional profile of the student. It builds the student's knowledge of basic physics course. These skills are also in lectures developed in the field of mechanical waves and propagation of mechanical waves in the material, in particular ultrasound waves. The knowledge acquired is then used in the practice of detecting defects in materials using ultrasonic diagnostic methods. The exercises are practical. In practical exercises are theoretical knowledge must be applied using modern ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus for real defects in metal and non-metallic preparations and products. The subject has an application focus.
