The focus lies on acoustic metamaterials which can control, dampen or modify sound waves by their spatial structure. For this purpose, theoretical concepts are chosen and their applicability for aerospace vehicles (aircraft or helicopters) is assessed. The necessary computational methods for acoustic metamaterials are being specifically developed by TU Munich. Selected design concepts for aerospace parts will be realized in cooperation with APWorks for all Airbus divisions. The most promising designs will be characterized in the acoustics lab and their industrialization will be assessed for aerospace vehicles.
