Bruel & Kjaer UK has launched its 2011 training calendar offering a range of theoretical and practical courses relating to noise and vibration measurement. The listing includes Theory and Practice of Noise Measurement, a two-day session providing a thorough grounding for those new to the field of acoustic measurements.
This course is recommended for all users of sound level meters and spectrum analysis equipment, such as 1/3-Octave Analysers, who wish to acquire a good basic understanding of acoustic and measurement principles for a variety of applications, including noise abatement, product labelling and building acoustics. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to perform a range of noise measurements and correctly set-up measuring instruments and assess noise reports.
Engineers and consultants who use vibration meters or analysis systems will benefit from attending the Theory and Practice of Vibration Measurement course, running in September, which covers the correct selection and mounting of accelerometers in a wide variety of industrial, research and R&D applications. This course also gives a non-mathematical description of signal types, filters, frequency and amplitude scales, RMS detection and averaging. In addition, it gives a brief introduction to digital signal analysis covering sampling and anti-aliasing and includes descriptions of FFT and Digital Filter analysers.
For those involved in vibration testing, the Vibration Testing for Engineers and Technicians course provides a practical introduction, explaining how to interpret vibration test specifications and apply them to a vibration test system. This course is designed for engineers new to vibration testing, but also serves as a useful refresher course for the more experienced user.
The company's contract-owning customers can also receive a 10 per cent discount, which is applicable for anyone with a current M1 and multi-year (3-5 years) contract registering for any course throughout the year.
