    qualification of atmosphere factors perturbation in sound speed and comparing different acoustic tomography methods. Then, these techniques have been applied to series of synthetic and obtained data from field trials. This part contains tasks and activities will be provided with the aim of the PhD project as follows: • Estimate variations impact on tomography process • Develop tomographic method with acoustic variations effects • Simulation of UAV AAT using LES Data • Conduct And Analysis modeling

  • Underwater Wireless Communication Networks Are Affected By Multipath, Large And Variable Propagation Delays

    1024 Words  | 5 Pages

    security mechanisms are discussed. Underwater wireless communication networks are particularly vulnerable to malicious attacks due to the high bit error rates, large and variable propagation delays, and low bandwidth of acoustic channels. A complete survey of securing underwater wireless communication networks is presented, and the research challenges for secure communication in this environment are outlined.Acoustic channels have low bandwidth. The link quality in underwater communication is severely affected

    research area for varied domains and applications. The domains include marine, aviation, transport, civil engineering etc. The applications could include numerous military and non military applications like fatigue failures in material, human comfort, acoustics stealth, marine mammal habitat assessment, condition based monitoring of machineries etc. In many engineering situations, machines are mounted on flexible structures such as the ships deck, aircraft fuselage, car or train chasis, building floors

    also found in non-destructive testing (NDT), where invisible flaws in structures or products can be easily found. Another, well known application is SONAR (Sound Navigation And Raging), which uses transmitted and reflected underwater sound waves to detect and locate underwater objects. Diagram for sonar and some ultrasound range Non-destructive testing is one of the topics discussed later in the study. NDT incorporates a

  • Applications of Noise and Vibration Studies

    industry, on the other hand has its focus of study on airframe noise which is transmitted to the environment surrounding the airports and are under strict regulation by regulatory bodies in all countries. For ships, interior noise and noise transmitted underwater has been the topic for research over past 40 decades. A brief review of applications of noise and vibrations studies is presented in subsequent paragraphs. In the railway industry, the studies are mainly focussed on the mechanism of generation and

  • The Effects of Different Coloured Lighting and Ambience on Mood

    2960 Words  | 12 Pages

    Abstract This study was conducted to determine the combined effects of coloured lighting and ambient sound on mood. 48 psychology undergraduates, comprising of 38 females and ten males, took part in this study. This study is a 2x2 between subjects design. The coloured lightings used in this study are blue and yellow combined with the ambient sound of ‘city’ and ‘nature’ whereas mood was measured with the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS). We discovered that coloured lighting had no significant

  • The Basic Properties of Sound Essay

    860 Words  | 4 Pages

    First of all, a sound source radiates power and this results in a sound pressure, where the sound power is the ‘cause’ and sound pressure is the ‘effect’. But still, we always have to keep in mind that sound cannot travel through vacuum, simply, because sound propagates as a wave, which creates ‘compressions’ and ‘rarefactions’, as it interacts with the particles of the medium. If there is no medium, then there are no particles and of course, there is no interaction wave-particles interaction and

    odour. Unlike music, Sound Art usually does not require silence for its proper presentation. Containers of silence called music rooms resonate with the aesthetics and affects on the body of a gallery space; white walls, floorboards to create optimum acoustics, and an ethereal sense of time and space. When presented in a gallery space, sound art’s

  • Four Dimensionssions Of Film Sound In The 1960's Film Psycho

    793 Words  | 4 Pages

    Answer 1: There are four dimensions of film sound that can be found in this clip from the 1960’s film Psycho, these are rhythm, fidelity, space, and time. When directing this scene Alfred Hitchcock had to make a lot of decisions regarding sound in it. Each of these choices has different implications and will affect the audience differently. Let's start with fidelity, I believe Hitchcock purposely implemented a lot of fidelity in this scene. I think he used common and familiar environmental sounds
