Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To study in depth basic and special methods of acoustic and supersonic defectoscopy according to the syllabus of the subject and instructions of person guaranteeing the subject. To present the mentioned methods at a specialized seminar of doctoral students. To prepare the application of mentioned knowledge according to the assignment of topic of PhD thesis.

Teaching methods



The subject contains the description of characteristics of acoustic field in connection with criteria for hearing hazards. Further, it deals with noise spreading in constructions and noise reduction, the way of spreading noise from the source, and the methodology of noise measurement. Electroacoustic converters are a basis of the next part, which discusses measurements in acoustics and electroacoustics, including sound recording and reproduction. Ultrasound and ultrasound defectoscopy methods are considered in terms of ultrasound defectoscopy and ultrasound check technology.
