The team of the UPV has extensive experience in acoustic testing of materials:

 

acoustic measurement techniques based on the Kundt’s tube and in transmission tube, in reverberant chamber and in anechoic chamber. In addition it has been carried out various designs with these techniques in different public financing. Some illustrative level are:
