Research Group, Eindhoven University of Technology

Building Acoustics (BA) is the acoustics research group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The group strives to contribute to the reduction of adverse health effects caused by human-induced noise and to promote positively perceived sound environments. The research in the group revolves around developing computational and experimental methods for acoustics in the built environment, with research areas on acoustics materials, environmental acoustics and acoustic virtual reality.

Paper about a local time stepping approach of the Discontinuous Galerkin time-domain method for room acoustics

Paper alert! Applying the Discontinuous Galerkin time-domain methods to room acoustics is time consuming if the mesh needs local refinement for geometrical reasons. In this JASA paper, a discontinuous time stepping approach is successfully presented, implying a release of the high computational constraint for meshes with strong local refinements. A next step in wave-based room…

Quantification of impact sound of lightweight wooden floors via heeldrops

Find out about our latest Acta Acustica paper! We experimentally explored the use of a heel drop as an impact source to quantify the impact sound performance of lightweight wooden floors. A impact force plate was used for this purpose. At low frequencies, the measurement quality using the help drop is higher compared to an…

Autumn School Series in Acoustics

On December 14th, we launched Autumn School Series in Acoustics (ASSA) website. ASSA is a yearly-returning one-week acoustic school on a post-graduate Ph.D. level which will be held at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) organized by the Building Acoustics group of the TU/e. The first ASSA will be held between October 31 – November 5,…

New Assistant Professor

Dr. Jieun Yang (in the picture above) was appointed to be assistant professor in acoustic materials. She is currently working as a postdoc in our group. Her appointment starts as of January 1st, 2021.

dr. Jikke Reinten!

On Thursday September 10th, Jikke Reinten defended her PhD thesis ‘Exploring the effect of the sound environment on nurses’ task performance: an applied approach focusing on prospective memory’ at TU/e. Congratulations, Jikke!
