Introduction to Acoustics online course by Korea Advanced Institute

Introduction to Acoustics online course


Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology offers online course on Acoustics. Learn about acoustics by using the concept of impedance. Wave propagation in closed space is also covered in this course. Leads to understand essentials as well to cover graduate level topics.

About the course

This course introduces acoustics by using the concept of impedance. In the previous part, the course starts with vibrations and waves, demonstrating how vibration can be envisaged as a kind of wave, mathematically and physically.

This course is for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in acoustics, audio engineering, and noise control engineering. Practicing engineers and researchers in audio engineering and noise control, or students in engineering and physics disciplines can take up this course.

Course Syllabus

Week 1: Radiation - Breathing & Trembling Sphere Problem

Week 2: Radiation - Baffled Piston & Finite Vibrating Plate Problem

Week 3: Scattering & Diffraction / Kirchhoff-Helmholtz Equation

Week 4: Wave Propagation in Space / Reverberation Period and its Design Application

Week 5: Wave Propagation in Space / Duct Acoustics


Elementary knowledge about vibration, dynamics and calculus is required. For the continuity of the lecture, taking part 1 of the course is recommended (but not required).

Course Format

The class will consist of 1 introduction video and 6 lecture videos per week, each of them is about 20 minutes in length. There will be a quiz every week, and a final exam at the final week. Lecture PPT files are available in the course.
