The physical acoustics technical committee is concerned with fundamental acoustic wave propagation phenomena, including transmission, reflection, refraction, interference, diffraction, scattering, absorption, dispersion of sound, and sonoluminescence. The use of acoustics to study physical properties of matter, and to produce changes in these properties, is also of interest.
The Physical Acoustics Technical Committee Open Meeting is typically held at every ASA meeting on Tuesday at 7:30 pm.
