Study on interesting wave propagation phenomena


Prof. Hideo UTSUNO

Department of Mechanical Engineering
Kansai University

Date & Time


CPD-G.03, Centennial Campus, HKU

This talk will introduce our research over the last 40 years on wave propagation and vibro-acoustics. Specific topics include 1. singing cable: flexural wave propagation 2. sound absorption: porous material and MPP 3. violin: stick slip vibration of string 4. Rijke tube: self excited sound 5. Quiz: meaning of complex number in acoustics

Professor Utsuno received his B.S. from the Department of Aeronautics at Nagoya University in 1980, his M.S. and Ph.D. from the Department of Aeronautics at Tokyo University in 1982 and 1994, respectively. He was employed in the Mechanical Engineering Research Laboratory at Kobe Steel, Ltd beginning from 1982 to 2003, then he was employed as an Associate Professor at Kyoto University in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Science from 2003 before he moved to Kansai University as a full professor.
