Technical Committee for Acoustics, Ultrasound and Vibration

The Technical Committee for Acoustics, Ultrasound and Vibration (TC-AUV) is concerned with technical issues related to acoustical metrology. The results of TC-AUV's work are important for areas such as industrial applications, healthcare or environmental protection.

The focus of the Technical Committee covers:

  • Sound in Air
  • Vibration
  • Ultrasound
  • Underwater Acoustics


The technical fields include:

  • Realization of primary standards
  • Electroacoustics transducers
  • Sound sources
  • Vibration generators and transducers
  • Sound and vibration measurement techniques
  • Standards and calibration techniques for audiology
  • Technical and industrial ultrasound
  • Medical ultrasound
