MATELYS - Acoustique & Vibrations

Matelys is an independent research laboratory dedicated to the study of porous materials in acoustics, thermodynamics, mechanics and flow.


We characterize acoustic and elastic parameters of porous materials.


We prescribe independently noise control solutions and assist you to build multi-functional specifications.


We lead R&D projects in acoustics, mechanics, thermodynamics or flow in porous media.


We build software products for characterization and modeling of the vibro-acoustic properties of multi-layer systems.


We digest fundamental research works and support you towards autonomy.
