Seminar description

The project aims to develop a physical multi-source model to study and analyze how the body acoustic emissions propagate.

The body is a source of different sounds that can indicate whether the human is healthy or not. However, since the structure is composed by different types of tissue, the sound propagation mechanism is not clear yet.

We propose to build a physical multi-source model in the lab to be evaluated by collecting data from the model prototype.

Learning objectives

  • Learn concepts of body sounds
  • Create a physical multi-source model of body acoustic emissions
