Abstract : We are interested in finding deformations of the rigid wall of a two-dimensional acoustic waveguide, which are not detectable in the far field, as they produce neither reflection nor conversion of propagative modes. A proof of existence of such invisible deformations has been presented in a previous paper. It combines elements of the asymptotic analysis for small deformations and a fixed-point argument. In the present paper, we give a systematic presentation of the method, and we prove that it works for all frequencies except a discrete set. A particular attention is devoted to the practical implementation of the method. The main difficulty concerns the building of a dual family to given oscillating functions. Advantages and limits of the method are illustrated by several numerical results. Copyright © 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
