The purpose of this work is the design and implementation of a software application for the estimation of the acoustic behaviour of a rectangular room, when a number of sound sources are activated. The room dimensions, the number and positions of the sources can be modified. Materials are chosen from a library. Sound level distribution is calculated for a desired section of the room, using the image source method. Room modes are calculated for studying the standing waves. Reverberation times are also calculated using statistical formulas. Effort has been made for the use of this software in non-rectangular rooms, based on different estimation methods.
