This Forum will bring together the UK and international research communities in ultrasonics, acoustics and fluids in a two day event full of interesting talks, technical demonstrations and mind-challenging workshops.

You will be able to find out more about how ultrasonics and acoustic waves interactions with liquids have an effect in bio-sampling, microanalysis, and microfluidic diagnosis. How acoustics and ultrasound can support the detection and characterisation of defects in engineering structures and its application to particular sectors such as aerospace and power generation. Finally, you will gain insight about the heart of the acoustics engineering science, the sensor.
