Past Event: Old Problems, New Solutions: Architectural Acoustics in Flux

January 8, 2020 at 7:30 pm

Location: Digipen Institute of Technology, Redmond, WA

Moderated by: Greg Dixon

Speaker(s): Ron Sauro, NWAA Labs Inc

 A short, (ha!), review of major changes in the field of architectural acoustics. These changes should be applied to future designs of acoustic spaces both large and small. It seems that many of these changes have been discussed at ASA and INCE meetings for many years but much of it does not get heard at other meetings such as AES and CEDIA. These changes affect ALL of us and need to be disseminated everywhere acoustic spaces are used or designed.

Topics to be discussed

  • Major changes in Absorption, Diffusion (diffraction), and Transmission loss measurements.
  • How can these changes best be used.
  • Directivity measurements of speakers and diffusers and their implementation into computer aided designs.
  • A short video tour of NWAA facilities and the research into acoustics performed there.


Please join us at our January meeting for what should be an informative update in the field of architectural acoustics.
