Salford Acoustics Research and Arup co-host workshop on the use of numerical modelling and auralisation in built environment design

The SoundLab at Arup’s Manchester Office

Prof Yiu Lam and Dr Jonathan Hargreaves have been working for the last three years in collaboration with Steve Langdon at the University of Reading and industrial partners Arup and the BBC on an EPSRC funded project developing new computational acoustic algorithms aimed at auralisation applications.  As a culmination of this, they are organising a two day workshop to discuss the latest developments, and future research challenges and priorities, in this field, and specifically its application to built environment design consultation. The workshop will be hosted by Arup at their Manchester office, and will make use of their renowned SoundLab facility for audio demos.

Dr Jonathan Hargreaves represented the Acoustics Research Centre at the EAA Joint Symposium on Auralization and Ambisonics in Berlin today, with his presentation entitled ‘An energy interpretation of the Kirchhoff-Helmholtz boundary integral equation and its application to Sound Field synthesis’. This included some new orthogonality relations for spherical harmonic waves, which have potential applications in spatial audio rendering and high-order microphone array design. Jonathan was delighted to hear that the paper had been selected as one of the 10 best in the conference, and will be included in a special issue of Acta Acustica United with Acustica later in the year.
