Enseignement spécifique des masters - AE-09 : Structural Acoustics


This course aims at showing the links between the physical and mechanical source parameters and the radiated noise characteristics. We will give the principles and calculation methods of acoustic fields radiated by vibrating structures:
• modelization of sound sources;
• prediction and measurements of radiated noise (pressure, directivity, power, frequency spectrum and time-domain signature).
The main applications are ground, maritime and air transportation, but also building, energy and musical instrument acoustics.

Objectifs pédagogiques

Characterize simple sound sources (point sources, piston) in terms of radiated pressure, power, adn directivity
Model and describe the pressure field radiated by a vibrating plate in interaction with a fluid

Compétences complémentaires:
Using Matlab software for radiated acoustic field calculations.

Programme détaillé

In the first part of the course, we study elementary sound sources:
• pulsating sphere and monopole,
• oscillating sphere and dipole,
• extended sources and Kirchhoff-Helmholtz integral equation.
In the second part of the course, we examine in detail the basic problem of a baffled vibrating plate in interaction with a fluid. We describe the acoustic field radiated in the so-called subsonic and supersonic domains. Then, we show how the results for a flat baffled plate can be extended to more complex geometries (unbaffled plates, shells, cavities).
The lectures come with guided exercises in the classroom and in the computer room.
