The Acoustics and Audio Group run a regular series of informal seminars on a wide range of topics. These are organised by Reg Harrison, and are open to all group members, MSc students, undergrad students, and anyone else who fancies coming along.
Often the seminars present an overview of ongoing research work in the group. This makes them a great way to see the everyday challenges encountered, and approaches taken, to research in acoustics and audio tech.
Seminars for 2015/16 (all happen at 11am in JCMB 6206, unless otherwise noted):
- 14/10/2015: Reg Harrison. Modeling viscous and thermal losses in tubes using optimised filter structures – Suitable Foster form electrical networks are presented that can be used as filters for the modelling of viscous and thermal losses within an acoustic tube
- 21/10/2015: Michele Ducceschi. Modelling of linear, stiff strings. Presentation of different models of linear stiff strings.
- 04/11/2015: Mike Newton. Introduction to Labview. A general overview of the Labview experimental equipment in the Group, and its use in experimental acoustics (particularly with pre-polarised microphones).
- 18/11/2015: Stefan Bilbao. Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) methods applied to the Wave Equation. A general overview of FDTD methods with application to the wave equation.
