ARCH 6880 - Sonics Research Laboratory 2
The second semester of the Sonics Research Lab includes advanced acoustical measurement techniques. Another important part of the semester curriculum concerns noise sources, noise control, and vibration measurements. State-of-the-art, commercial software and school research-based software will be used for simulation/analysis/measurement of room acoustics in order to show the students how such technical tools assist in acoustics research and consulting practice for the design of performance and public spaces. The course will also give students a deeper theoretical understanding of architectural acoustics in order to assist them in room acoustics research. There will also be labs to reflect typical measurement procedures and (if time permits) site visits to acoustics research labs and different types of acoustical spaces. The Sonics Research Lab II emphasizes more training on independent hands-on and problem-solving skills (than the SRL I).
B.S. and B.Arch., and other school students can only register for the 4000 level of this course and M.S.Arch. students must register only for the 6000 level of this course.
