A propos DENORMS CA 15125

DENORMS (Designs for Noise Reducing Materials and Structures) Action, CA 15125, is funded by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST). DENORMS Action activities were launched on the 9th March 2016 for 4 years.

Training School 5

Use and characterisation of new acoustic treatments and tools

Budapest (Hungary), 16-18 December 2019


DENORMS Action’s 5th Training School “Use and characterisation of new acoustic treatments and tools” was held from 16th to 18th December 2019 in Budapest (Hungary), organised by Óbuda University.

This Training school was aimed at the industrial partners and Early Career Investigators. The training was offered in both theoretical and experimental aspects of developing new sound absorbing and sound controlling structures.

During the first day, the refresher training courses were organised covering the basic theory of sound interaction with porous materials and metamaterials. During the following two days lectures and practical sessions familiarised the audience with the new methods used in design of conventional and metamaterial based noise reducing treatments.

More information on the program of the Training School.

« Wave propagation in complex and microstructured media »

DENORMS Action Training School 4 « Wave propagation in complex and microstructured media » was held from 20th to 30th August 2019 in Cargèse (FR).

This Training School, co-organised by PMMH, UMR CNRS 7636, LAUM, UMR CNRS 6613, Institut Langevin, UMR CNRS 7537, and POEMS, UMR CNRS 7231, aimed at presenting the latest theoretical advances and experimental activities in the field of wave propagation in complex media, with a particular focus on wave guides in different contexts including the case of microstructured media, typically metamaterials.

The main objective of the school was the pooling of knowledge in this domain so that participants can learn the formalisms – techniques – methods – tools from the different communities of wave physics and thus, enlarge their knowledge for their own research. The interdisciplinary nature of this school should generated exchanges and collaborations between the different communities involved in this subject.

The affected wave domains covered acoustics, elastodynamics, electromagnetism as well as water waves.

« Working days on design and characterisation of innovative noise reducing materials and structures »


DENORMS Action’s forth Workshop “Working days on design and characterisation of innovative noise reducing materials and structures” took place October 9 – 10, 2018 in Kuopio (Finland), and was organised by University of Eastern Finland.

The aim of this workshop was to foster collaboration and exchange of ideas between researchers working on different topics centred around noise reducing treatments. 6 groups have been established.

Within each group the participants developed a detailed collaboration program. The outcomes of each program were new grant applications, publications, and detailed work plan – all to be completed within a year from the date of the meeting.

For more information, see the Workshop flyer and tentative agenda.
