Room Acoustics

In the Room Acoustics Module, research focusses on sound propagation in rooms.

The Room Acoustics team deals with sound propagation in rooms. Class rooms, theatres, concert halls and churches should ideally possess good musical acoustics and allow speakers to be clearly heard. To achieve this, the best possible conditions for the propagation of the sound of speech and of musical instruments to the audience must be created. In addition, however, one must not forget the importance of the acoustic conditions in rooms used in everyday life such as restaurants, foyers and living areas.
