ANNOUNCEMENT AERO- AND HYDRO-ACOUSTICS An Advanced Five-day Course 29 March - 2 April 1993 University of Cambridge U.K. This post-experience short course will illustrate the applicability and power of a wide range of mathematical techniques to important issues of modern acoustics. The mathematics is described informally, the emphasis being on its usefulness in advanced research over the broad spectrum of unsteady mechanical problems met in aeronautical and underwater practice. Particular problems treated range from those of classical acoustics, through to active control and non-linear phenomena, such as shock propagation, soliton mechanics and deterministic chaos (with applications to acoustics, turbulence and the noise of bubbles). The lecturers are at the forefront of the subject and the course is an exposition of their new book Modern Methods in Analytical Acoustics (which will be included in the registration fee) : PROFESSOR D. G. CRIGHTON University of Cambridge PROFESSOR M. HECKL Technical University of Berlin
DR A. P. DOWLING University of Cambridge PROFESSOR F. G. LEPPINGTON Imperial College of Science and Technology
PROFESSOR J. E. FFOWCS WILLIAMS University of Cambridge
The course is offered for industrial acoustics specialists and researchers (both engineers and scientists) involved in acoustics, vibration and unsteady flow problems in aeronautics and underwater applications. The course fee is £995 and accommodation can be arranged at Wolfson College at a cost of £230.
