Acoustics, Psychoacoustics, Hearing: Architectural Acoustics
In the tutorial the physical principles of room acoustics will be explained. It will be explained how, by measuring or calculating impulse responses along arrays of receiver positions, the temporal and spatial properties of a sound field can be analyzed and understood, and how these properties are related to perceptual quality cues. Several models to calculate impulse responses will be discussed. Architectural as well as electro-acoustical measures to correct for acoustical shortcomings will be proposed. All these aspects will be illustrated with examples from practice.
