Kick-off Equal-Life project

The H2020 project Equal-Life had is kick-off event at 12-14 February in Utrecht (NL). The project will develop and test combined exposure data using a novel approach to multi-modal exposures and theirimpact on children’s mental health and development. From the Building Acoustics group, the involvement consists of Maud Dohmen, Ella-Braat, Maarten Hornikx and a new…

Acoustic Virtual Reality In Challenged Based Learning

For a design student learning acoustics may seem at times too abstract. We are currently developing an Acoustic Virtual Reality (AVR) platform to allow students to experience the sonic potential of their spatial designs in a multimodal immersive way. You can read more information about the project at this link.

New research collaboration with Oculus!

In January 2018, our Building Acoustics group has started a research collaboration with Oculus, well known for its virtual reality headsets. With this new research project, we aim to answer the question: How close get we get to reality with auralization from a wave-based methodology? We will carry out this research for a small living room sized space and the research will…

New PhD project started!

Sai Charan Trikootam has started today as a PhD student in our Building Acoustics chair on project titled: Numerical modelling of sound propagation in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). The project aims to develop a numerical method for 3D sound propagation in the atmospheric boundary layer involving complex meteorological conditions. The method can be used…
