The course aims at giving the student a fundamental understanding of the complexity of human response to sound & vibration. Another aim is to underline the relative uncertainly of current knowledge of human reaction to noise and vibration and to make the student aware of the dangers in predicting human response from currently typical measurement data. The aim is also to make the student familiar with current measures of sound & vibration as applied to estimation of human response.
