EAA / UKAN Computational Acoustics Summer School

 05 - 09 Jul 2021

Scientific Organisers

  • Olivier Dazel, Le Mans Université
  • Gwénaël Gabard, Le Mans Université
  • Jonathan Hargreaves, University of Salford
  • Vicente Cutanda Henriquez, Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
  • Nick Ovenden, University College London

This Summer School will offer graduate-level training in the fundamental and applied aspects of computational acoustics. It covers the main numerical methods currently in use in industry and under development in academia, such as: finite element method, finite-difference method, boundary element method, and geometrical methods. The course will include the required theoretical foundation needed to understand the properties of numerical schemes for acoustics. Attendees will also benefit from tutorial materials to develop best practice with several simulation methods. Taught by leading academics and researchers in the field, the course is intended for researchers and engineers from both academia and industry.

The summer school is sponsored by European Acoustical Association (EAA) and the UK Acoustics Network (UKAN).  Priority is given to meembers of these associations. Please note that UKAN is free to join for any researcher in the UK.
