FOURTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THEORETICAL AND COMPUTATIONAL ACOUSTICS (Stazione Marittima, Trieste, Italy, May 10-14, 1999)
The conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for active researchers in academia and industry and of varying backgrounds to discuss the state-of-the-art developments and results in theoretical and computational acoustics and related topics. Papers presented at the meeting will cover acoustical problems of common interest across disciplines and their accurate mathematical and numerical modelling .
CONFERENCE TOPICS: The topics of the conference will include, but are not limited to:
- Computational aero-, seismo-, and ocean-acoustics; hydro-acoustics, bio-engineering acoustics, non-linear acoustics, structural acoustics; - Multidimensional wave propagation modelling: grid methods (spectral, FD, FEM, FV, BIE, BEM, etc), particle and meshless methods, ray techniques, symbolic methods, ODE methods; - Solution methods for large-scale problems (iterative solvers for indefinite systems, multi-frequency methods, etc.); - Supercomputing and parallel methods; - Exterior problems: local and global radiation boundary conditions, infinite elements, absorbing layers; - Wave propagation in bore-holes, rocks, fluid-solid interfaces, anisotropic media, viscoelastic, porous and fractured media, as well as in random media; - Ultrasonic wave propagation and nondestructive testing; - Engineering and Computational seismology; - Shallow water acoustics and environmental/bottom parameter extraction; - Random Wave Fields and Ambient Noise; - Global acoustics and large-scale monitoring; - Inverse scattering problems; -Acoustic tomography and full-field inversion; - Optimization in acoustics; - Real applications, case histories, and data compression.
