Acoustic illusions

Researchers have devised an ingenious method of using acoustics to conceal and simulate objects.



Built-in vibration control may help soundproof spaces

A different kind of design for absorbing vibrations could help better soundproof walls and make vehicles more streamlined, a new study shows.



An incredibly light new material that can reduce aircraft engine noise

Extremely low-density graphene-based aerogel 'meringue' can improve passenger comfort and reduce noise up to 80%.



Who We are?

The purpose of the International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV) is to advance the science of acoustics and vibration by creating an international scientific society that is responsive to the needs of scientists and engineers in all countries whose primary interests are in the fields of acoustics and vibration. The Institute cooperates with scientific societies in all countries and with other international organizations with the aim of increasing information exchange by sponsoring, cosponsoring or supporting seminars, workshops, congresses and publishing journals, newsletters and other publications. The IIAV provides a refereed journal on paper, the International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration (IJAV), electronic newsletter and the International Sound and Vibration Digest (ISVD) for all members as part of their dues.

The IIAV organizes an annual premier world event, the International Congress on Sound and Vibration (ICSV), which combines all areas of acoustics, noise and vibration.

The International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration is affiliated to the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM)
