MAE 496: Undergraduate Research Projects

Every semester

Signal Processing, Experimental Acoustics, Principles of wave propagation


MAE 555 / MAE 495: Applied Acoustics

Spring

This graduate course covers the principles for acoustic and elastic propagation in fluids and solids. Diffraction theory is developed for finite sources. The notions of wavepacket, dispersion and waveguiding are reviewed. The fundamentals of the theory of elasticity and elastic propagation in solids are introduced, based on tensor analysis. Time reversal of acoustic waves is presented, as well as applications to medical imaging, elasticity imaging and nondestructive testing.
