Dr. Berthelot's research interests are ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation (NDE), acoustic materials, and laser-based sensors. As a violinist, he is also interested in musical acoustics. Ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation (NDE) refers to the use of ultrasound to probe a given medium and gain useful information about its interior. Dr. Berthelot's research involves the use of lasers to generate and detect ultrasound. Laser ultrasonics is particularly attractive for applications where contact with the specimens is to be avoided (e.g., moving specimen, hot surfaces). He is currently involved in a project aimed at measuring the mechanical properties of complex materials by measuring with lasers the properties of ultrasonic propagation simultaneously in time and frequency (wavelet analysis).
Structural acoustics deals with the problem of sound radiation from vibrating structures (e.g, submarine hulls, aircraft fuselage, automobile interiors, appliances). An important aspect of structural acoustics is to characterize damping of waves in complex acoustic materials. Dr. Berthelots expertise in this area is the use of laser vibrometry to measure the vibrations of complex structures and materials. He and his students have developed a new method to measure the Young and shear moduli of viscoelastic polymers with coated microinclusions that are used as coatings. The method is also used to characterize damping in rubber materials and composites of interest to the tire industry. Dr. Berthelot's interest in acoustic materials also extends to improving existing models of porous absorbing material using a causality principle.
The Integrated Acoustics Laboratory (IAL), with its state-of-the-art scanning laser vibrometer, anechoic chamber, the semi-anechoic and reverberation chambers, offer an excellent opportunity for students to be involved in a variety of exciting experimental
