Engineering Acoustics

Engineering Acoustics comprise method development and modelling regarding generation, propagation, perception and effects of sound and vibration. Applications are mainly within automotive, residential environment and industrial processes.

Our research and education focus on society's and industry's requirements in relation to comfort, health, safety, environment and efficiency. The research is mainly conducted in in relation to automotive NVH, residental and work environments, cross-laminated timber constructions, and process intensification by ultrasound.

The research subject, founded 1989, has produced 22 doctoral dissertations. Today, the research team consists of 4 senior researchers and 4 doctoral students.

Sound quality test of air cleaners

It is well known that noise in the home environment is an important issue, and requirements and marketing of products often refer to the product's sound power, which must be documented. An example of this aspect is visible in the marketing of so-called air purifiers.

New projects financed by Formas

This year's call from Formas was successful for The Department of Civil, Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering at Luleå University of Technology.

First projects funded within PRECISE

The first research projects within the Future area of sustainable precision health, PRECISE, are now starting. Close to SEK 5 million is distributed among 28 approved start-up projects. Together, the projects represent many aspects of precision health, from early diagnosis on molecular level to health promoting measures when renovating buildings.

Sweet music for microbes

In a new research project, researchers from Luleå University of Technology will investigate how microorganisms in biochemical processes reacts to different sound; audible sound and ultrasound. This is a unique experiment involving two research subjects at the university, Biochemical Process Engineering and Engineering Acoustics.

Gränsöverskridande konst
Innovative art and science

Art can evoke emotions and touch us – make us ask questions, create well-being, or provoke.Art can also help us to communicate experiences and information.When art meets technology, the creativity that exists within each area can together provide new opportunities to solve complex problems.
