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.

In situ acoustic characterization of a locally reacting porous material by means of PU measurement and model fitting

Reliable data on acoustical properties of materials are crucial for the design of a desired acoustic environment as well as to obtain accurate results from acoustic simulations. Although the acoustical properties of materials can be obtained via laboratory measurements, situations where in situ measurements are needed are often encountered. In our recent paper published in…

Residents of Groene Hart develop aircraft noise measurement network

Annette Pietersen, Guus Elkhuizen, Jan Leendert van den Heuvel and Maarten Hornikx are working together on a citizen measurement network Airplane noise Groene Hart. Source: nieuwkoper.nl The number of flights to and from Schiphol doubled between 1990 and 2018 to almost five hundred thousand a year. This growth has led to a significant increase in nuisance…
