Small Concert Hall Analyzer

Application ID: 22241


Designing structures and open spaces with respect to sound quality is important for concert halls, outdoor environments, as well as the rooms of a house. You can simulate acoustics in the high-frequency limit, where the wavelength is smaller than the geometrical features, with ray acoustics.

This application analyzes the acoustics of a small concert hall using the Ray Acoustics physics interface. Users of the app can define a microphone location to measure the impulse response, an omnidirectional sound source, wall absorption parameters, and the properties of diffusers. The results include a filtered energy impulse response for a given Fourier component.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
