This advanced doctoral course is organized by ENSTA ParisTech within the framework of the European Marie Curie Initial Training Network BATWOMAN (link is external) (Basic Acoustics Training and Workprogram On Methodologies for Acoustics Network). It will be part of a Technical Workshop arranged for the participants of the network. In order to increase the outreach impact of the course, the course will be open to doctoral students from outside the network interested in musical acoustics.
The course consists of 4 lectures of 90 minutes, devoted to the acoustics and numerical simulation of the piano and on nonlinear dynamics of plates. All lectures will be given by internationally recognized experts in the field.
