Inria newsletter Emergence: A new concept in acoustic insulation for transport

By plane, by car, or by train, noise is often part of the journey. Technological advances are there, but some sources of noise still don’t want to hear anything and continue to resist… At the Inria Center of the University of Rennes, scientist Christophe Droz is exploring an innovative way to better control waves. The idea: to establish interactions between distant areas of the structure to cancel out very low frequency vibratory effects. In perspective: new material concepts for engineers in the field of vibration and noise control. See the full article. Read it here.
