Workshop on “Modelling of high performance acoustic structures Porous media, metamaterials and sonic crystals”

DENORMS Action’s first Workshop on “Modelling of high performance acoustic structures Porous media, metamaterials and sonic crystals” took place on 24th and 25th January 2017 in Rome, organised by Roma Tre University gathering more than 80 participants.

This Workshop was dedicated to theoretical and numerical modelling of acoustic treatments made of porous materials and periodic structures. The Workshop also had a session on Multiphysics applications including electromagnetics aimed at broadening the scope of theoretical and numerical results available in different areas of Physics and Mathematics. On this occasion, the leading experts in these fields shared their knowledge with other researchers, PhD students, young scientists and engineers from all across Europe.

The « Workshop Best Paper » was awarded to Ms. Camille Gaulon, PhD candidate at Laboratoire Matière et Systèmes Complexes, Université Paris Diderot, for her presentation on Acoustic properties and dissipation in liquid foams

 The Workshop was organised in 4 sessions of half a day each:

  • New trends in traditional noise treatments – porous materials and microperforated plates
  • Acoustic metamaterials (i.e. subwavelength absorbers), metasurfaces and sonic crystals for audible sound manipulation
  • New trends in vibroacoustics (i.e. elastic metamaterials and metasurfaces)
  • Use of metamaterials in other fields of Physics and metamaterials exposed to multiple physical phenomena
