Noise and vibration reduction and control are major societal and industrial issues requiring the development of new acoustic materials as well as innovative approaches both in terms of process and target properties. Everyday life and industrial standards impose lighter, thinner, and longer-life structures that are needed to mitigate and absorb vibrations and acoustic noise. With the advent of new technologies, such as 3D printers, or new types of materials, such as acoustic metamaterials, the field of acoustic materials has received an increasing amount of interest during the last few years.
In this context, we are launching this Special Issue on acoustic materials with the goal of bringing knowledge on, but not restricted to, the following research topics:
- Absorbing materials;
- Acoustic metamaterials;
- New techniques for designing acoustic materials;
- Modelization of acoustic materials;
- Theoretical models for the design of acoustic materials;
- Porous materials;
- Poroelastic materials;
- Locally reacting surfaces/metasurfaces;
- Acoustic diffusers;
- Composite materials;
- Phononic/sonic crystals;
The invitation for contributions is addressed at manuscripts in the form of research articles, review articles, and case study investigations that combine theoretical and experimental research, applications related to the design, modeling, optimization, fabrication, and acoustic characterization of acoustic materials. Moreover, submissions on real applications and simulations in different environments are strongly invited in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Acoustics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
