Project description

The workgroup acoustics of the chair of building physics deals with questions in the fields of structure-borne sound as well as building and room acoustics. The research focuses on: How do sound and vibrations propagate in buildings? How can sound propagation be simulated and calculated? How can sources of structure-borne sound (e.g. heat pumps) be characterized by measurements? Can sound waves be made visible? How can the acoustic quality of a room be optimized or can the room air temperature be measured with sound? - These and other questions are addressed and explored in research projects, courses and student theses in the acoustics group.

A research approach for the investigation of sound propagation is presented - the acoustic miniature test rig.
