Acoustic Laboratory

Equipped with a 64-channel Ambisonics system, the Acoustic Properties Laboratory can record and reproduce acoustic environments under laboratory conditions to investigate human perception in a broad range of built environments—from the office to the concert hall. This laboratory is fully equipped for field and laboratory measurement of room acoustic parameters, noise levels, and vibrations, including conventional and operational modal analysis. Measurement equipment, including two acoustic cameras, can be used to identify sound sources and transmission paths, sound absorption and transmission characteristics of materials, and impact noise levels and sound insulation ratings from field measurements. In addition, finite element and geometrical acoustic modeling software can be used to predict advanced room acoustics.
