Implants are routinely employed in orthopaedic and dental surgeries. However, risks of failure, which are difficult to anticipate, are still experienced and may have dramatic consequences. Failures are due to degraded bone remodeling at the bone-implant interface, a multiscale phenomenon which remains poorly understood. Implant stability is a key determinant for the surgical success and is determined by the quantity and biomechanical quality of bone tissue around the implant. The primary stability occurs at the moment of implant surgical insertion within bone tissue, while secondary stability is obtained through osseointegration process, a complex multiscale phenomenon, which strongly depends on primary implant stability. The objective of this presentation is to show how acoustical methods may be used in order to provide a better understanding of the multiscale mechanisms at work at the bone-implant interface. Moreover, we will show how acoustical techniques can be used to retrieve the primary and secondary stability of different implants. The first part of this presentation will describe a methodology combining experimental surgery and a multimodality approach. A dedicated coin-shaped implant model is used and has the advantage of providing reproducible and standardized conditions. We will show how quantitative ultrasound may be used to retrieve information on the evolution of the periprosthetic bone biomechanical properties.The second part of this presentation will focus on the development of non-invasive acoustical methods that may be used to retrieve implants stability. The first set-up uses quantitative ultrasound in order to assess dental implant primary and secondary stability. The second device consists in an impact hammer equipped with a piezoelectric sensor that allows to retrieve the primary stability of implants used in total hip replacement. The validation of both approaches has been done in vitro, in silico and in vivo.

Improvement of sound insulation and absorption performance without increasing weight or thickness has always been the pursuit of the acoustical society. For an acoustical wave in the low frequency range, neither insulation nor absorption is easy to be dealt with by a thin structure, because the noise insulation is restricted by the so-called mass law and the absorption is limited by the reactance of structural input impedance. In both cases, to achieve effective results, the mass of structures need to be handled properly. This lecture outlines the ongoing effort to improve sound insulation and absorption for lightweight structures. Besides, examples on the vibro-acoustic properties of lightweight plates subject to typical excitations are presented, and novel structures designed for low frequency sound absorption are also reported and discussed.

Gears have recently been aggressively adopted in large aircraft engines because they improve turbine and fan blade efficiency by better matching the optimal speeds of the associated shafts. The high operating speeds and extreme focus on weight reduction lead to gear vibration behaviors that are distinct from conventional gears. High speeds give high excitation frequencies, and lightweight, thin-walled gears have lower natural frequencies. This combination triggers resonance, gyroscopic effects, nonlinearity, vibration of the gears as elastically compliant bodies, and parametric instability. These behaviors are driving development of new models and analysis tools different than what is typical for conventional gears. This presentation will start with industrial examples motivating the work. Next, we describe modeling and analysis of gear vibration using analytical and finite element/contact mechanics methods, with special attention to planetary gears because they are the de facto standard in aerospace applications and because of their interesting dynamics arising from cyclic symmetry. These models, and their experimental validations, will be used to illustrate and explain, without emphasis on mathematical details, the unique vibration behaviors that occur and how the analytical/computational findings have powerful practical implications.
