Montreal, July 12, 2019 – On July 10, the IRSST’s chief scientific officer, Kannan Krishnan, presented four $500 prizes at the 26th International Congress on Sound and Vibration (ICSV26). The awards recognized the excellence of papers on occupational health and safety (OHS) presented by students enrolled in a Canadian institution.

Award winners:

  • Simon Benacchio, a postdoctoral fellow at the École de technologie supérieure, in recognition of his paper An Artificial Ear to Assess Objective Indicators Related to the Acoustical Comfort Dimension of Earplugs: Comparison with Attenuation and Occlusion Effect Measured on Subject
  • Fabien Bonnet, PhD, École de technologie supérieure, for his paper titled An InEar Noise Dosimetry Method that Excludes the Sounds Generated by Individuals Wearing Earplugs: Preliminary Field Study
  • Yu Luan, a doctoral student at the École de technologie supérieure, for his paper A Coupled Finite Element/Transfer Matrix Method to Simulate the Insertion Loss of Earplugs in an Acoustic Test Fixture
  • Laurence Martin, a postdoctoral fellow at the École de technologie supérieure, for her paper Earplug Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR) in NoiseExposed Workers: Evolution Over a Five-Week Follow-Up
Remise de prix

Simon Benacchio, Fabien Bonnet, Kannan Krisnan, Yu Luan et Laurence Martin

“I wish to congratulate the four prize winners,” said Kannan Krishnan. “ICSV is a major event in the field of acoustics and vibration. It gives scientists an opportunity to share their research results and discuss ideas about theories, technologies and applications in this area. The Institute is delighted to have been associated with the organization of this prestigious international conference and to have awarded prizes to encourage the next generation to enter the field.”

Over 850 people attended the conference, at which papers and technical posters were presented by researchers from all over the world on major topics relating to sound and vibration.
