Sound and vibration is part of our daily life. Sound and vibration properties are critical to the function and the quality of environments, products, and transportation. Today the design of high-speed trains, automotive vehicles, transport infrastructure, cities and buildings is strongly influenced by performance requirements with respect to sound and vibration properties.
The division of Applied Acoustics is one of the leading acoustic laboratories in Europe. Its mission is to contribute to a sustainable built environment and infrastructure as well as to support European industry in the development of products and services with appropriate sound and vibration properties.
