Bob Chivers Prize in Physical Acoustics
This annual prize promotes research in physical acoustics by recognising the best paper by a PhD student at a UK university.
The prize is £250 and a certificate.
The research on physical acoustics can include but is not limited to:
- seismic waves
- room acoustics
- non-destructive testing
To be considered papers must:
- have been accepted for publication
- be publicly accessible (in electronic form or on paper) by 31 May of the year of the award
