PhD in development of acoustic resonant metamaterials for building applications Leuven Belgium,
Posted on : 12 June 2017
ProjectWhereas novel material concepts, such as for instance the metamaterials, come to the fore as efficient lightweight and compact solutions for building noise and vibration problems, there is a lack of adequate tools for accurate and fast assessment of the material and structure meso- and macro-properties of these concepts. Since also in building design, Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools have become indispensable in cost and time efficient development, fast and cost efficient identification approaches are also needed to feed the numerical vibro-acoustic computer models with reliable data. The proposed PhD track will investigate the shortcomings of currently existing identification approaches which typically rely on large, expensive infrastructure and are very time-consuming and develop new approaches based on lessons learned in the Mechanical and Aerospace industry where similar problems are encountered but different approaches are used.
