Improvement of the sound absorption of flexible micro-perforated panels by local resonances KU Leuven
To further improve the sound absorption enhancement of flexible micro-perforated panels (FMPPs), a new sort of perforated sound absorbers – metamaterial-based micro-perforated panels (MMPPs) – is proposed by combining a micro-perforated host panel and local resonators (LRs) attached on a sub-wavelength scale, targeting the flexural waves. Theoretical and numerical models show that MMPPs are able to further enhance sound absorption in a wide ...

War of nerves : the domestic terror threat and the Belgian army Universiteit Gent
The terror threat emanating from Daesh-inspired violent radicalization has made the vulnerability of soft targets and the means to defend them a pressing security challenge. Belgium responded to the threat by deploying the army to help protect the public space against terrorist attacks. This paper explores the Belgian case of a counterterrorism mission by the military on home soil, but also looks at the wider security challenges posed by an ...
