Technical Acoustics


The lecture "Technical Acoustics" addresses the basics of acoustic phenomena and provides an overview of the main aspects of acoustics. It is supplemented by excercises and a laboratory which deals with standard measuring techniques and includes experiences in acoustic measuring techniques.
