Co-organised by: Sergey Sorokin, Apostolos Tsouvalas

The interaction of elastic waves in structures with adjacent media is a classical research topic which has been actively explored for decades. The goal of this mini-symposium is to provide a forum for researchers in this field to discuss recent advances and challenges in modelling and analysis of performance of structures exposed to either heavy or light fluid loading. 

Specific topics such as computational methods of structural vibrations, definition of acoustic fields and acoustical interactions between fluids and structures are most welcomed. Session also encompasses advances in structural materials used and methods applied aiming in modifying the structural vibrations to reduce noise emission. 

Topics to be covered by this mini-symposium include, but are not limited to:

  • Structure-borne noise emission
  • Noise mitigation strategies
  • Experimental vibro-acoustics
  • Elastic wave propagation
  • Nonlinear effects in vibro-acoustics
  • Acoustic Black Holes
  • Acoustic source localisation
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Periodicity and localisation effects in vibro-acoustics
  • Wave and Finite Element Method for multi-component waveguides and its spin-offs
  • Asymptotic methods in analysis of dynamics of structures under heavy fluid loading
  • Machine Learning Approaches in Vibration and Acoustics
