      Condition Room acoustics
      The goal Rooms are common acoustic transmission system in acoustical practice. The objective of the course is revealing to students a basic knowledge about sound field in room necessary for research in that important field. Students are introduced in characteristics of sound field in room, method for its modeling and physical properties of means for its control.
      The outcome Ability for individual research in acoustic design
      Contents
      Contents of lectures Sound field in front of the wall. Mathematical models of sound field in rooms: wave theory, geometrical model and statistical model. Sound absorption and sound absorbers. Subjective effects of combined sound fields.
      Contents of exercises Acoustic design of a real classroom.
