Outline and Purpose of the Course For the realization of optimal acoustic space design in architecture, it is essential to understand
- Prediction of physical parameters of sound field in architecture
- Measurement and analysis of sound field
- Perception and cognition of acoustic space
with in-depth understanding of acoustics, psychology of hearing, and acoustic signal processing. This lecture introduces these theories and methods from physical and psychological viewpoints and recent research trend. In addition, presentation and discussion by students are conducted for better understandings.
Course Goals In-depth understandings of
- Prediction of acoustic space - Measurement and analysis of acoustic space
- Theory and method of perceptual evaluation for optimal acoustic space design in architecture.
