Le Centre Acoustique

The Center for Acoustic Research

The Center for Acoustic Research, which was created in the 1980s to meet the growing interest in Aeroacoustics and in interaction between Acoustics and Turbulent flows, is part of the Fluid Mechanics and Acoustics Laboratory (LMFA, UMR CNRS 5509), and of the Fluid Mechanics, Acoustics and Energy Department (MFAE) at Ecole Centrale de Lyon.

The activities of the Center for Acoustic Research are organized around Aeroacoustics of rotating surfaces, Dynamic and acoustic of compressible shear flows, and Propagation in non-homogeneous media and nonlinear effects.

The Center for Acoustic Research is a founding member of the CeLyA Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx). CeLyA is an alliance of the main research teams working in acoustics in Lyon & Saint-Etienne (80 permanent researchers; engineering acoustics, medical applications of acoustics and sound perception). The Center for Acoustic Research is also part of the Carnot Institute Engineering-at-Lyon.
