ARCH 6870 - Sonics Research Laboratory 1

The Sonics Research Lab is completely research based. First, students will develop an understanding of the measurement equipment and analysis required in order to quantify qualitative aspects of various sonic environments. In addition, students will examine the ISO standards for measurements in order to develop specific research goals. Students and professors will travel to a performance hall and perform measurements. Students will then analyze the data and interpret the results. Dissemination of results will go toward furthering the practice of architectural acoustics and increasing the understanding of the resultant subjective quality of a room.
