Sound waves in metamaterials and porous media


Within COST Action CA15125 DENORMS – Design for noise reducing materials and structures, Training School  “Sound waves in metamaterials and porous media” was held at CTU-FEE from September 26, 2016 to September 30, 2016, co-organized by Department of Physics of CTU-FEE. The following lectures have been delivered during the Training School:

  • Multiple Scattering Theory – D. Torrent (Univ. Bordeaux, France),
  • Theory of homogenization applied to porous materials – Dr. C. Boutin (École Nationale des Travaux Publics de l’État, France),
  • Sonic crystals – Dr. V. Romero-García (Laboratoire d’Acoustique de l’Univ. du Maine, France),
  • Metamaterials for sound absorption – Prof. P. Sheng (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, China),
  • Acoustic wave propagation in viscothermal fluids and nonlocal homogenization – Dr. D. Lafarge (Laboratoire d’Acoustique de l’Univ. du Maine, France),
  • Homogenization Theory applied on periodic structures – Prof. J. Sánchez Dehesa (Univ. Politècnica València, Spain),
  • Numerical methods for porous media – Prof. P. Göransson (KTH, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden),
