Bruel and Kjaer UK is now taking bookings for its autumn training courses including sessions with technical lectures on acoustic and vibration subjects, as well as practical equipment training:
The Type 2250 User Training for environmental measurements training course goes through the basics, from setting the meter up for different types of environmental measurement through to advanced tips and tricks - such as creating user setups - and runs through a number of measurement exercises with the 2250 instrument.
The Practical use of sound level meters course is aimed at all new users of sound level meters looking to acquire the necessary measurement skills as quickly as possible. It is also suitable for more experienced users looking for a quick refresher.
Beneficial for engineers hoping to improve their understanding of the response of humans to vibration, the Human vibration measurement course explores how vibration relates to health hazards, comfort and perception. It examines measurement of whole-body and hand-arm vibration - and measurement uncertainties - in assessing risks to health in compliance with EU Directive 2002/44/EC. The course is suitable for technicians, engineers, safety officers and consultants working with occupational health departments, manufacturers of machinery causing vibration, mobile machinery (eg construction, freight, etc), and manufacturers of anti-vibration pads, seats or personal protection equipment.
The PULSE Basic and advanced user training course has been created specially for PULSE users to learn how to design products that meet all their multi-channel sound and vibration measurement needs - and covers both the basics and the more advanced features of the company's PULSE multi-analyser system. There is also an optional third-day session, called PULSE Visual Basic programming, focusing on the fundamentals of Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), programming and how to apply them to automate simple measurement tasks in the PULSE Labshop.
The Use of software (Type 7820) for processing results from 2250 course is suitable for users of 2250 Sound Level Analyser and 7820 Evaluator software looking to get the most from their software.
This one-day course works through the UK Field Guide, teaching the basics and problem solving using the 7820 software. The application of the methods used against real case studies will be discussed and assessed.
The Sound insulation measurement course is an introduction for anyone new to measuring building acoustics and room acoustics, and is also suitable for those unfamiliar with Bruel & Kjaer's sound level meters such as the 2260 Investigator, or the 2250 or 2270 Sound Level Analysers with Building Acoustics or Room Acoustic modules.
The PULSE user day is a focused seminar for customers to learn about and discuss the most current version of this data acquisition system. It includes a product introduction, an overview of the features in the most current release and covers future enhancements and developments.
The Principles of acoustics course is recommended for all users of sound level analysers and spectrum analysers, such as 1/3 Octave Analysers, who would like to acquire a good basic understanding of acoustic and measurement principles for a variety of applications such as noise abatement, product labelling and building acoustics.
The Vibration measurement two-day course focuses on how to select and mount an accelerometer correctly in a wide variety of industrial, research as well as research and development applications - and how to measure vibration levels and analyse the frequency spectrum. The accent is on preventing common mistakes and misconceptions often encountered in vibration measurements.
The Advanced acoustics applications training course is recommended for users involved in the design of more quiet products such as automotive industry or household appliances. Attendees will benefit from an in-depth description of sound intensity measurements including calibration and pI-index, sound power determination and noise source mapping. The theoretical parts are combined with practical measurements and demonstrations and the participants are given extensive opportunities to perform measurements on their own.
