FSI-OAAAcad. year: 2020/2021
Basic description of acoustic waves in gases, decibel scale, levels of acoustic pressure, intensity and power, acoustics spectrum. Human ear and mechanism of hearing. Normalisation and hygienic requirements for noise levels. Noise level produced by boundary layer and high speed jet. Noise level produced by aircraft, noise of jet engine, propeller and supersonic bang. Noise insulations and dumpers, dumpers of vibrations.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students will gain basic knowledge on noise and its effect on human body and calculation of noise characteristics and noise level.
Basic knowledge of mathematics, differential and integral calculus, ordinary and partial differential equations. Basics of physics and mechanics, acoustics recomended but not limited condition.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Participation in lectures is obligatory. Awarding a graded course-unit credit is conditioned by the attendance at lectures, at least 10 of 13. The graded course unit credit is given on the basis of the test of 6 questions.
Language of instruction
Students will gain basic knowledge on noise generation, possibilities of noise measurements and protection against noise.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
If students attend less then 10 of 13 lectures they have to prove they have completed missed lectures.
