Research project: Investigation into the use of numerical methods to create a virtual sound environment

Currently Active: 

Research Project

Virtual sound environments can be created by convolving signals with the impulse responses of an acoustic space and reproducing the resultant signals over a binaural system such as headphones or a 3D audio system. In some cases, when the desired acoustic space is available, these impulse responses can be measured directly, however, for the auralisation of other spaces, such as un-built rooms, these data are not available. This project is concerned with using numerical room models to estimate the impulse responses of any desired space. Methods such as finite elements and ray-tracing are being tested for this application along with newer techniques such as finite difference time domain.
