Analysis and simulation of room acoustics

The acoustic properties of an enclosure determine how sound is affected when it propagates from an active acoustic source (e.g. a person talking, a loudspeaker or a musical instrument) to a receiving point (e.g. a listener or a microphone). Early reflections convey important information about surfaces found along multiple propagation paths and also give hints about position, orientation and directivity of the sources.
Accurate measurement and analysis of room impulse responses and of their evolution in time and space provide a better insight into room acoustics and enable an improved modeling of sound propagation in real enclosures.
