The 2018 KU Leuven Course on Applied & Numerical Acoustics will take place in September 2018 in Leuven, Belgium. It is the 29th in a series of courses on experimental and numerical techniques in applied acoustics, organised by the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the KU Leuven. This edition of the KU Leuven Applied Acoustics Course is set up as an extended overview of some recent techniques in applied acoustics with emphasis on applications in automotive and aerospace industry. This overview covers techniques ranging from active noise control to the use of boundary and finite element methods in acoustic problems and is intended to update the expertise of practising engineers and researchers. The overview is application oriented with emphasis on background principles and on practical use of the methods. The course will be illustrated with case studies and real life demonstrations of several experimental and numerical techniques.

Who should attend

The course on Advanced Techniques in Applied and Numerical Acoustics is intended for researchers and engineers, active in the field of noise and vibration analysis and optimization, who wish to update their knowledge on some recent topics in applied acoustics. No previous knowledge of the related topics is required; some general background in the field of experimental and numerical analysis techniques is however advantageous.

Location and language

The course takes place from 20 until 21 September 2018 on the campus of the KU Leuven, Celestijnenlaan 300, B-3001 Leuven, Belgium.
