The Associate Editors (AE) will organise, and encourage other scientists to organise, recurring benchmark case sessions at international conferences. Contributors are highly recommended and encouraged to submit a proposal of a benchmark case to such an upcoming event (conference, symposium). This gives the authors of new benchmark cases the possibility to adjust and optimise the defined benchmark case prior to submitting it to this website.

Submitting benchmark cases

The initial benchmark cases on linear acoustics serve as good practice examples for the submission of new benchmark cases. However, the minimum requirement for defining a benchmark case is similar to presenting results in a scientific paper, i.e. the necessary information to reproduce the results should be present. Also, a benchmark case should be valuable for its related technical field. Contributors of new benchmark cases or solutions to existing benchmark cases submit a case by e-mail to one of the AE of the benchmark cases.

Accepting benchmark cases

The AE will assign a BE to handle the submitted (solution to a) benchmark case. The BE will review the submitted matter, and/or request peer expert(s) to review the submission:

-   Linear acoustics (Jonathan Hargreaves, Manfred Kaltenbacher)

-   High frequency acoustics (Monika Rycht√°rikov√°, Juan Miguel Navarro Ruiz)

-   Acoustics and vibration (Olivier Dazel, Edwin Reynder)

-   Acoustics involving heterogeneous and moving fluids (Gwenael Gabard, Stefan Becker)

A case will either be accepted, rejected, or a revision will be asked for.

Contributors can make their accepted work citable by creating a DOI ( This DOI will then be included in this benchmark case database.

Utilizing benchmark cases

The AE will encourage scientists in all fields of computational acoustics to submit and use the benchmark cases, and to volunteer as a reviewer of benchmark cases for a specific field. Also, the AE will encourage young scientists to deploy the benchmark cases, e.g. by including benchmark cases at summer and winter schools in acoustics.
