How to Adjust Room Acoustics to Multifunctional Use at Music Venues

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Chair of Acoustics and Multimedia, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Wroclaw, Poland', u'authorUrl': u'', u'full_name': u'Piotr Z. Kozlowski', u'id': 37086491341}] 2018 Joint Conference - Acoustics, 2018

Multifunctional venues such as local culture centres have to be flexible to host many different kinds of concerts, theatre shows, and various other events. Additionally, many existing venues such as theatres, concert halls, and even opera houses need to present shows which are not typical for their purpose. This situation caused a strong need to change the acoustic parameters of ...

Computing room acoustics with CUDA - 3D FDTD schemes with boundary losses and viscosity

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Acoustics and Fluid Dynamics Group/Music, University of Edinburgh, UK', u'authorUrl': u'', u'full_name': u'Craig J. Webb', u'id': 37711145200}, {u'author_order': 2, u'affiliation': u'Acoustics and Fluid Dynamics Group/Music, University of Edinburgh, UK', u'authorUrl': u'', u'full_name': u'Stefan Bilbao', u'id': 37283405500}] 2011 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP), 2011

In seeking to model realistic room acoustics, direct numerical simulation can be employed. This paper presents 3D Finite Difference Time Domain schemes that incorporate losses at boundaries and due to the viscosity of air. These models operate within a virtual room designed on a detailed floor plan. The schemes are computed at 44.1kHz, using large-scale data sets containing up to ...

Intelligent and adaptive acoustics in buildings via blind room acosutic parameter estimation

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Acoustics Research Centre, School of Computing Science and Engineering, University of Salford, Greater Manchester, M5 4WT, UK', u'authorUrl': u'', u'full_name': u'Francis F. Li', u'id': 37274935000}] 2010 2nd International Conference on Computer Engineering and Technology, 2010

From an architectural acoustics perspective multi-purpose enclosures in buildings with variable and adaptive acoustics are difficult to achieve. However, such spaces may become more feasible using amplified sound with the aid of signal processing and blind room acoustic parameter estimation techniques. The paper proposes the use of room acoustic parameters extracted from received speech or music to determine the amount ...

Average output SNR of the multichannel Wiener filter using statistical room acoustics

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'University of Oldenburg, Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics - Signal Processing Group', u'full_name': u'Toby Christian Lawin-Ore'}, {u'author_order': 2, u'affiliation': u'University of Oldenburg, Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics - Signal Processing Group', u'full_name': u'Simon Doclo'}] 2013 IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics, 2013

The performance of the multi-channel Wiener filter (MWF), which is often used for noise reduction in speech enhancement applications, depends on the noise field and on the acoustic transfer functions (ATFs) between the desired source and the microphone array. Recently, using statistical room acoustics an analytical expression for the spatially averaged output SNR, given the relative distance between the source ...

Directional source modeling in wave-based room acoustics simulation

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'University of Edinburgh, Acoustics and Audio Group, Edinburgh, UK', u'full_name': u'Stefan Bilbao'}, {u'author_order': 2, u'affiliation': u'University of Edinburgh, Acoustics and Audio Group, Edinburgh, UK', u'full_name': u'Brian Hamilton'}] 2017 IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics (WASPAA), 2017

Wave-based modeling in room acoustics and virtualisation applications constitutes an alternative to geometric or ray-based approaches; finite difference time domain (FDTD) methods, defined over regular grids, are an excellent match to parallel architectures. Acoustic sources are typically included as monopoles or collections of monopoles, realised, in an FDTD setting, as a forcing of a single grid point. This paper is ...

  • Acoustics Goes Back to War: Mass Mobilization and Remilitarization of Acoustics Research

    On 30 January 1933, Adolf Hitler was sworn in as chancellor of Germany by President Paul von Hindenburg. This date marks the National Socialist Machtergreifung (seizure of power) and the end of the politically and economically unstable Weimar Republic. In this chapter, I explore the connections between acoustics, the attempt of the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers Party) to control various soundscapes, and its ideology and practices.
