W6 - Measuring Room Acoustics—An Overview of Techniques and Relevance
Sam Berkow, SIA Acoustics, USA
David Griesenger, Lexicon, USA
This workshop will review the various methods used to measure the performance of concert hall acoustics. There are several different acoustical values that define the "acoustics" of a hall. From ambient noise measurements to measurements of reflections and reverberation, this workshop will review several methods of obtaining data, and even more methods for extracting comparative information from the raw data. Measured results from several real concert halls will be presented and analyzed.
