Symposium on the Acoustics of Poro-Elastic Materials
December 16-17-18, 2014
Stockholm (Sweden)

The objectives of this 2014 edition was "exploring multi-functionality"

Recent advances in computer power, numerical algorithms and signal processing techniques have allowed a number of advanced theoretical and numerical methods for acoustic porous media modelling and characterization to be developed. A majority of this research is for noise control applications or to predict sound propagation in highly heterogeneous porous materials and composite. As a result, this work has not been communicated sufficiently to researchers working in adjacent disciplines outside noise control. These disciplines include polymer extrusion, pharmaceutical and food industries, medical research, soils and underwater sediment characterisation.

The symposium aimed:

  1. to present the most up-to-date developments in modelling, characterisation and applications of acoustic porous media,
  2. to communicate the advances in acoustics of porous media research to adjacent disciplines concerned with material technology,
  3. to discuss future challenges for this area of research.
