T02 SS04Active meta-materials

Acoustic metamaterials are engineered structures designed in such a way to exhibit acoustic properties not readily available in nature. One of the main issues of such artificial structures is the limited bandwidth over which the acoustic properties can be tweaked out. To overcome this, active control techniques have been identified as an enabler, driving a significant part of the scientific community towards the development of active metamaterials. This structured session aims at providing a snapshot of the research on active metamaterials and metasurfaces, through the presentation of theoretical and experimental investigations, highlighting the practical applications of such concepts.

T03 SS03Combustion noise and thermoacoustics

Unsteady combustion generates sound. A particularly violent form of combustion noise tends to arise if the combustion takes place in an acoustic resonator, because then the heat release rate and the sound field can interact in such a way that they amplify one another, generating a "thermoacoustic instability". This can lead to structural damage in gas turbine combustors and some types of aircraft, so avoiding thermoacoustic instabilities is paramount. They are a complicated phenomenon, involving sound waves, combustion, aerodynamic effects and structural waves, as well as the interaction between all these. This session aims to bring together scientists with an academic and/or industrial background in this area. With its focus on fundamental aspects of thermoacoustics, it complements the session T03 SS07 "Dynamics and acoustics in sprays, liquid fuel flames and aero engine combustors", which focuses on the engine applications and which is organized by Jim Kok.

Suggested topics of the current session include, but are not limited to the following: Modelling of the thermo-acoustic feedback with analytical and numerical methods; Nonlinear effects; Active control of combustion noise and thermo-acoustics; Modelling of the acoustic source processes with a view to application in analytical and numerical methods; Sound propagation in combustors with non-uniform properties; Boundary condition modelling and measurements; Physical processes involved in the generation of combustion noise.

T05 SS02Nonlinear acoustics and vibrations

Nonlinear acoustics and vibration has become increasingly important during the last forty years due to the exponential increase of computation power, increasingly higher sensitivity of electronic instrumentation and suitable signal processing. It is a broad field, which encompasses large amplitude sound waves and vibration. The nonlinearity of materials results in nonlinear effects, which arise from defects in the materials present at all scales. Applications include nonlinear nondestructive testing (NDT), harmonic medical ultrasound imaging, high intensity focused ultrasound for noninvasive surgery, cavitation, and control of high intensity jet noise and development of new materials such as nanocomposite and memory based materials. Also included are the phenomenon of chaos, which has become popular during the last twenty years with the establishment of institutes of nonlinear science and complex systems in universities and research centres. In addition, journals are now dedicated to this subject. Chaos theory is used today even in the prediction of price movement on stock markets. Also an important topic for this session will be the application of gauge invariance approach to nonlinear acoustics and vibration which will include treatment of inverse scattering and multiple scattering problems and interactions. Structured sessions on nonlinear acoustics and vibration are present since ICSV5 in Adelaide, Australia in 1997. We have witnessed the growth in this field demonstrated by the increasing number of papers to the current number of twenty to thirty papers presented at each ICSV congress.

T05 SS03Sound propagation in curvilinear spacetime

Acoustic cloaking is the first application of sound propagation in curvilinear spacetime. Curvilinear spacetime approach is especially suitable for intense sound and nonlinear acoustics due to the curvilinear path of intense sound field. By developing nonlinear acoustics on the curvilinear spacetime, one will increase the sensitivities, accuracies and completeness of the subject.

Also curvilinear spacetime will enable the covariance of all equations in physics. This is also a revolutionization/reformulation of nonlinear fluid mechanics and nonlinear fluid dynamics, especially for application to naval architecture and to study of jet noise, rocket noise and space shuttle noise. This structured session will introduce Einstein's field equations to acoustics. The scope of this session will include:

(1) nonlinear acoustics on curvilinear spacetime to include gravitational field
(2) derivation of acoustic field equations on curvilinear spacetime, for applications to both fluids and elastic solids.
(3) application of gauge invariance to multiple scattering and interactions on curvilinear spacetime
(3) hypersonics and astro-acoustics
(4) sonic fusion
(5) the extension of acoustic radiation force (ARF), an intense sound to curvilinear spacetime which will bring in the gravitational field. This will include topics of drug delivery and force of levitation

T06 SS03Factory noise and control techniques

Noise exposure is one of the most persistent problems in the large product assembly industry. The factory noise environment depends on many different factors including the type of machinery used (e.g., riveting, drilling, etc.), the number of machines, their installation, the factory floor size, and any noise abatement treatment used. In many cases, the noise levels easily reach unacceptable levels which are compounded when multiple machines may be operating simultaneously. Additionally, reflections from hard surfaces without sound dampening designed into those surfaces add to excessively high noise levels. The resulting cumulative noise levels can easily exceed 100+ decibels during normal operations. This type of prolonged exposure to noise has adverse impacts on the human hearing system and also contributes to psychological concerns. Automation has improved manufacturing in the areas of quality and speed, but the resulting high level of noise and vibration continues to affect workers in heavy industry. Technical submissions are sought in the area of factory noise and control methods.

T06 SS04Noise and vibration in small, medium and large industries

Whatever their size, workshops often have noise problems. More to the point smaller entities seldom enjoy a private internal health and safety service, or environmental control for that matter, and solely rely on the labour ministry doctor – if available and willing to dabble in environmental matters. The following aspects are especially tackled in this session: i) Noise in the environment (overview of regulations, consequences on operations, monitoring the noise, noise reduction problems); ii) Noise at the workstations outdoors (assessing noise exposure, reducing noise at the source, planning the work to reduce the noise exposure, case of maintenance people); iii) Considerations with regards to the industrial building (overview of regulations, requirements for acoustic absorption, reducing the sound propagation, ensuring alarm signals can be safely heard, while making sure the neighbourhood is suitably protected); iv) Legal considerations: While one may emit recommendations and hope for the best, most of the time it is necessary to implement regulations in order to achieve a result. But is it sufficient to edit a regulation if nobody is in charge of applying it? Furthermore, even in the European Union where the rules are supposed to be identical in each member country, is the law applied in the same spirit everywhere? This session aims to compare experience gained in various countries and over a broad range of subjects, and wonder about the potential perspectives.

T08 SS01Sustainable acoustic materials

Acoustical sustainable materials, either natural or made from recycled materials, are quite often a valid alternative to traditional synthetic materials. The production of these materials generally has a lower environmental impact than conventional ones, though a proper analysis of their sustainability, through Life Cycle Assessment procedures, has to be carried out. Papers concerning the experimental characterization and modelling (airborne sound absorption, airborne and impact sound insulation) of sustainable, innovative materials are welcome within this structured session. Papers related to mixed and composite materials and to systems such as green roofs and green walls are also welcome. The analysis should possibly include also the evaluation of the environmental performance of the proposed sustainable material.

T08 SS03Acoustic metamaterial and phononic crystal: fundamentals & applications

Acoustics is a classic field of inquiry that has enjoyed a strong revival during the past two decades, propelled mainly by the advent of phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials, two newly developed research areas that focused on man-made structures with acoustic properties not commonly found in nature. Whereas phononic crystals denote periodic structures exhibiting frequency bandgaps in which there can be no propagating acoustic/elastic waves, acoustic metamaterials acquire their exotic characteristics as collective manifestations of local resonators. Both phononic crystals and acoustic metamateials are composite structures comprising materials of different mass densities and hardness. In the case of acoustic metamaterials, however, the response of the composite to external excitations can differ from a rigid solid by having internal relative motions between the different material components. The past fifteen years have witnessed the novel capabilities that can arise from such locally resonant sonic materials, which are characterized not only by their subwavelength physical size, but also by their effective mass density and bulk modulus that can exhibit negative values. There are tremendous scope in the applications of acoustic metamaterials and phononic crystals, such as acoustic superlens, acoustic cloaking, aeroacoustic cloaks. The recent discovery of metamaterial as artificial phase transition manifested in quantum metamaterial producing artificial superconductivity and metamaterial as route to high temperature superconductivity. Permmitivity, permeability, effective bulk modulus and effective mass density are transport properties. Metamaterials with singularity behaviour of transport properties at point of local resonance similar to that of singularity at critical point of phase transition. Based on transport properties, one can go beyond acoustic and electromagnetic metamaterials to other forms of metamaterials. With metamaterials as artificial phase transition, one can control the degree of phase transition. The unusual phenomena exhibited by the phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials, as well as their underlying physics, are the subjects of this structured session.
This special session will cover the following topics:
phononic crystals ; nonlinear phononic crystals ; band-gap metamaterial; negative refraction; double negative metamaterial; acoustic cloaking; aeroacoustic cloak; acoustic diodes; acoustic waveguides and resonators based on metamaterial; application of phononic device to communication; sound insulation panel using metamaterial; vibration reduction using metamaterial; acoustic metamaterial as artificial phase transition.

T09 SS03Auditory virtual reality for hearing assessment and training

The evaluation and rehabilitation of the hearing-impaired person are typically performed in a clinical context unrepresentative of the reality experienced by the person on a daily basis. Consequently, establishing the level of disability and functional limitations remains theoretical and not based on actual experience. However, some recent studies have shown the value and feasibility of using virtual sound environments that provide a more consistent clinical environment with the day-to-day experience of the hearing-impaired person. The session proposes an overview of the use of virtual sound environments for the assessment and rehabilitation of hearing-impaired people.

T11 SS05Structure-borne and impact noise

Structure-borne and impact noise is invariably more complex than airborne noise in terms of measurement, prediction and determination of transmission paths.  Structure-borne noise in buildings is traditionally concerned with everyday impacts from human activities such as footfall; furniture movement; object or weight drops; or high-intensity activities in fitness centers or the transmission of ground-borne vibration into the building structure.  There is debate over the accuracy and practicality of structure-borne noise prediction methods, particularly when flanking structures and resilient materials are incorporated. Equally the usefulness of established single-figure rating metrics and their associated test methodology is under study with regards to human perception considering the wide range of impact sources and building partition types through which this structure-borne noise transmits. Reducing impact noise in residential buildings requires the adoption or development of materials and solutions for the control of direct and flanking structure-borne sound. Papers are sought for this technical session that address these issues related to structure-borne and impact noise, their transmission paths and prediction methods in buildings.

T12 SS05Technology for underwater sound measurement and monitoring

The measurement of underwater sound can include understanding the naturally occurring acoustic phenomena such as ambient noise generated in the volume of the ocean and at the boundaries and how that propagates and scatters. This is often known as Acoustical Oceanography. Within this definition there is also the monitoring and measurement of biological sources ( eg. Snapping shrimp, fish, marine mammals). Sonar technology is also often used for the detection man-made targets in the background of the naturally occurring sounds already described. This session will include papers that cover all aspects of technology advances for the measurement of the aforementioned sound sources, i.e. Sensor types and their geometry, signal conditioning, beamforming, signal processing, detection, classification and tracking and image processing. Additional oceanographic sensors may be included for ground truth or benchmarking, but the core of the paper should be about the acoustic measurements.

T12 SS06Ship and harbour noise and vibration

Noise and vibrations generated by ships affect a wide range of receivers: crew and passengers inside the vessel, inhabitants of the coastal areas and marine fauna outside it. Recent studies suggest that a large percentage of people living in urban areas close to harbours and a number of marine species, at different evolutionary levels (in particular mammals and cephalopods), suffer from ship N&V emissions in air and in water. The present degree of knowledge of the phenomena involved in the noise emissions inside and outside ships is quite different, as a result also of the time elapsed since the negative effects were realized and therefore studied. The development of the normative framework in the various areas reflects these differences, but there are expectations for improvements on all fronts and need to be supported by the scientific community, that will definitely find in this structured session a suitable occasion for presenting the latest research results in this particular field of acoustics.

T12 SS07Ship underwater noise measurements, monitoring and control

Many researches focus on the reduction of the Noise and Vibration emitted from ships and submarines underwater.There are still concerns with sounds emitted underwater as related to ship design. This session addresses the design methods and the simulation results applied to ship design in this area. Special focus on using new algorithms and numerical methods that do not require long time to converge or to produce significant results. This structured session gathers experts from the scientific community who want to exchange experience as applied to new simulation methods in the field of predictive acoustics. Control and detection issues are also discussed.

T12 SS08EU Interreg Italy-France Maritime Projects on noise reduction in harbors

Noise from ports activities affects daily life of thousands people living in the Mediterranean area and in particular in the area covered by the EU funding programme INTERREG Maritime Italy-France.
Till now, having no common approach, port noise has been tackled with different approaches obtaining poor results in terms of public health and efficient planning. Projects funded as REPORT, MON ACUMEN and RUMBLE tackles the noise monitoring and planning of commercial ports in the cooperation area, developing
- a common methodology for noise monitoring and acoustic description,
- a comprehensive analysis of all acquired data
- best practices for an efficient action planning according to Directive 2002/49/EC.
The session will host papers describing the results of these projects and others on harbour noise and its mitigation.

T13 SS01Teaching acoustics to architects

This session aims to share various experiences encountered in teaching architectural acoustics. As we know, sound or noise can be perceived everywhere and urban or building design can have a great influence on how people will appreciate or be annoyed by hearing their environment. Architects are therefore major participants in planning for good or too often bad soundscapes. Classes dedicated to building professionals learning acoustics fundamentals always have to adjust to new materials, new standards or new techniques. Having a comparison of those teaching practices worldwide should help everybody to be more effective in alerting people to take care of building acoustics.

T13 SS02Education in acoustics: catching attention or teaching in minutes using traditional or nontraditional media and methods

The science of acoustics is usually taught using equations, numerical simulations, lectures and reference books. While reading carefully books or articles is a good way for digging into a specific subject, it requires significant time (a matter of days) and should be left to researchers and graduate students with a strong scientific background. In the case of lectures (a matter of hours), the often limited interactions between the speaker and the audience do not appeal to the connected and "high pace information processing" students from generations Y and Z.
The goal of this session is to discuss approaches that help teaching basic and more complex acoustics concepts in a reduced time (possibly a matter of minutes) combining efficiency, interdisciplinarity and interactivity. This includes (1) experimental components and hands-on demonstrations and (2) teaching alternatives like web pages, comics, video games or any other mean.

T13 SS03Musical Acoustics Education

Music students will not generally have the scientific background that would enable them to grasp the music concepts based on their knowledge in mathematics and physics. Consequently, teacher of music acoustics need to use alternative pedagogical approaches based on the music students' specific competencies associated with their musical training such as their ability to recognize the pitch of a sound. On the other hand, students from a scientific background sometimes do not have the musical or hearing training that would allow them to grasp fully some of the subtle challenges of musical acoustics. In this session, we are looking for presentations on the ways you have faced this challenge of teaching the interdisciplinary field of musical acoustics.

T14 SS02Tools for musical instrument design and making

For many years researchers have been developing tools for measuring and simulating musical instruments. These tools are now mature enough to be transferred to the workshops of instrument makers. The purpose of this session is to make the state of the art of the techniques used or usable in workshops but also to consider new methods and their transferability.

T15 SS01Low noise pavements, tires, joints, road markings, and bridges

The development of low noise pavements and tires evolves steadily. New materials and better models lead to a significant reduction of annoyance from road traffic systems. However, more and more attention have to be paid to local discontinuities in the road surface like joints, road markings, and bridges because they become more salient if rolling noise diminishes. This requires low noise discontinuities that relate to the adjacent low noise pavements. Also, legal aspects and annoyance analyses have to be taken into account, especially when complaints of inhabitants are involved. The complexity of the topic requires an integral acoustic and civil engineering approach of the complete road system. This section welcomes contributions on fundamental modelling, measurements, legal aspects of low noise pavements and tires, and various discontinuities.

T15 SS02Effect of transportation vibration on the urban environment

This session is concerned with contributions in the area of ground-borne vibration from road and rail traffic. Contributions could deal with measurements, with models for detailed and more global vibration prediction and with validation of numerical models. Models and empirical methods for determination of the excitation mechanisms and propagation models are welcome. Problems related to vibrations in buildings represent also an important environmental issue in network designs, especially for nearby structures in densely populated cities. The session further deals with control measures for vibration problems: their design, performance and validation.
