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.

PhD defense Huiqing Wang

At October 6, 4PM local time, Huiqing Wang will defend his PhD thesis titled Room acoustic modeling with the time-domain discontinuous Galerkin method. Huiqing has further developed the discontinuous Galerkin method to predict sound propagation in rooms. The 1 hour defence can be attended online via this link in MS Teams.

Welcome (back) Bram!

As of September 1st, Bram Botterman joined our group as a guest researcher. Bram graduated master with us some years ago and he carried out nice research on sound absorbing materials at that time (4TU sound absorbing glasses project, journal publication on sound absorbing materials). While leading his company Matude currently, he decided to come…

BOOST! project – A digital learning platform for building acoustics

Building Acoustics group initiated a new BOOST! education innovation project, ‘A digital learning platform for building acoustics’, supported by the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). This project aims to provide a digital educational platform that helps to improve the efficiency of the students learning, at a low effort of the involved teachers. One postdoc position…
