3rd VIPER Spring School


Poroelastic materials are key components of soundpackages: they make it possible to produce lightweight, efficient and easily industrializable devices.


The understanding of the physical phenomena governing the propagation of elastic and acoustic waves within these materials allows their optimal arrangement, leading to the desired dissipation of energy.

This spring school aims at providing basic concepts describing acoustic and elastic waves propagation in poroelastic materials, the more pertinent models and associated numerical implementations, the characterization techniques, up to advanced system designs and industrial applications. During three days, lectures will be given by world specialists of this field of research, from fundamental bases to industrial concerns. The spring school is open to audience of MSc and PhD students, engineers and researchers interested in vibroacoustics of poroelastic materials.
