The CSTB at the French Acoustics Convention

CSTB laboratories devoted to acoustic performance and sound comfort. Photo credit: Florence Joubert

Inside buildings or in city centers, sound and vibration waves are key challenges for the quality and comfort of living spaces. The CSTB has acoustic skills at every scale, from materials to urban areas. Extensive expertise and analysis methods that are both digital and experimental enable the CSTB to work on complex acoustic issues: city sound environments, disturbances caused by underground worksites, complex multilayer systems, comprehensibility in vehicles, and more.

From April 11 to 16, 2016, at stand S5A at the ESPE (École Supérieure du Professorat et de l'Éducation), 11 boulevard Pythagore - Le Mans For more information and to register, go to
