The time domain topological gradient has recently been presented as a promising technique for imaging of complex structures [N. Dominguez, et al., Wave Motion 42 (1) (2005) 31-52], showing results obtained on simulated data. The method relies on the adequate combination of two computed ultrasonic fields, one forward and one adjoint. The adjoint field, that(More)
Extensive use of transfer matrices (TMs) is made in determining the acoustic properties of a duct and in in-duct acoustic propagation models in the automotive industry and for musical acoustics purposes. The experimental apparatuses of classical TM measurement methods feature two measurement heads. Two microphones are flush with the walls of each head. The(More)
We present a theoretical study and experimental results for an acoustic multiscattering one-dimensional system made of cylindrical tubes of different diameters whose lengths follow a Cantor-like structure. Homothetic acoustical features and forbidden bands as well as wave trapping phenomena are reported.
Most musical instruments contain, at their very basis, a continuous vibrating element (string or air column) which can be treated as a one-dimensional system. Its oscillation is obtained either through an initial condition or by means of a continuous energy input through a nonlinear device. In both cases and as a first approach, the excitation can be(More)
We present an experimental study of the generation of strongly localized structures that propagate on the surface of a dissipative fluid. We excited a layer of fluid with a vertical periodic acceleration field, and a parametric instability occurs when a certain threshold value is achieved. This process is known as Faraday Instability and the temporal(More)
The effect of self-similarity on acoustic and elastic wave propagation at normal incidence is investigated using Classical Cantor and Fibonacci multilayered structures. They are made of two sorts of orthotropic plies having differently oriented orthotropic axes with respect to the propagation direction. The properties of their transmission coefficient are(More)
Time Domain Topological Energy (TDTE), uses the reflected ultrasonic field recorded by an array of transducers placed on the boundary of the inspected medium. Two numerical determinations (forward and adjoint problems) of the acoustical field inside a reference medium are necessary to compute an image. Topological Energy is defined as a variation of(More)
Using transducer arrays and appropriate emission delays allow to focus acoustic waves at a chosen location in a medium. The focusing spatial accuracy depends on the accurate knowledge of its acoustic properties. When those properties are unknown, methods based on the Time-Reversal principle allow accurate focusing. Still, these methods are either intrusive(More)
