Mechanical and acoustical characterization of materials

The CEVAA offers its materials expertise in the vibration and acoustic fields.

caractérisation acoustique des matériaux

Materials characterization

The CEVAA takes into account the characteristics of the materials, their requirements and their behavior under operational conditions.

Our services

  • Characterization of the dynamic properties (modulus of elasticity, damping, Poisson’s ratio) of viscoelastic materials, plastics, alloys, composites, …
  • Characterization of the acoustic properties of porous materials
  • Identification of a porous material model or a poroelastic model
  • Measurement of impact or slip-grip noise, characterization of material pairs
  • Measurement of sound absorption coefficient (α) and transmission loss (STL)
  • Measurement of sound insulation or insertion loss (IL) of a multilayer complex or a soundproofing piece
  • Modeling and optimization of damping treatments, multilayer materials, composites
