Acoustic Modelling

Curtis Auditorium at Cork School of Music

Acoustic modelling to predict and refine sound quality within conference and concert halls, theatres, opera houses, exhibition areas and museums is undertaken at AAD by computer simulation using Numerical Integration Technologies Ray Tracing, Mirror Image Source and Conical Beam algorithms within geometrical acoustical models of the proposed building.

We are able to compute and display three dimensional colour maps including Sound Pressure Level, Definition, Clarity Index, Early Decay Time, Lateral Efficiency (example for fan shaped auditoria) and RASTI-Index, each within short computation times.

We also use ODEON and EASE proprietary modelling packages.
