Acoustic instruments presented at the “Journées de l'Hydrodynamique” in Poitiers
Since 1987, every two years, the Journées de l’Hydrodynamique (JH, Hydrodynamics Days) gather researchers and engineers, mainly french-speaking, in marine hydrodynamics in the civil and military domains to present and discuss the most recent research works. This 18th edition took place on the Futuroscope campus of Poitiers from the 22nd to the 24th of November 2022, hosted by the Pprime institute. We would like to thank the organisation committee of this conference for the very nice welcoming. This event was a very nice opportunity to discover potential new applications for which ultrasound instrumentation can bring new and valuable information.

Conference at Pollutec 2011
In collaboration with HYDREOS (the French business cluster on water quality and management) we gave a conference entitled :
New Ultrasonic Measurement Techniques : Which Applications in Wastewater and Environment?
The innovations in the field of acoustic instrumentation allow the measurement of velocity and acoustic turbidity profiles in natural and industrial flows. In a similar approach to medical echography, the technology developed by UBERTONE permits the precise observation of the fluid. It therefore offers a new tool allowing hydraulic study in sewer networks, sediment transport tracking in rivers, etc.
