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.

New approach to measure absorption of vegetated roofs

How much sound does a vegetated roof absorb? To answer that question an appropriate measurement method is needed. In our recently published Applied Acoustics paper by Chang Liu, Fotis Georgiou and Maarten Hornikx, the acoustic impedances of greens roofs were retrieved by fitting parameters of a surface impedance model by measurents on the roofs. It…
