MWSW04 - Multiple scattering in engineering and applied sciences

Bubbles are ideal candidates for studying multiple scattering: they are strong and simple acoustic scatterers. Strong because they exhibit a low frequency resonance (Minnaert resonance), and simple because they are monopoles. It means that one can model the propagation of acoustic waves in a bubbly medium with simple mathematical tools. This talk will address some typical questions that arise in multiple scattering problems: how to include the effects of position correlations, scattering loops and polydispersity in the dispersion relation? We will first consider 3D bubbly media. In a second step, we will show that a 2D geometry is even simpler to model and leads to interesting applications such as the super-absorption of acoustic energy.
