Experiments in room acoustics: modelling of a church sound field and reverberation time measurements

  title={Experiments in room acoustics: modelling of a church sound field and reverberation time measurements},
  author={Joseph Quartieri and Shannon R. D’Ambrosio and Claudio Guarnaccia and Gerardo Iannone},
In this paper a study of the acoustical response of a new built church is shown. This study is based on the measurement of reverberation time, adopting the noise interrupted method, according to the International Standard. This method allows to evaluate the reverberation time by means of acoustical sound level acquisition and analysis. The reverberation time is one of the principal parameters to be optimized in order to design and/or verify the acoustical behaviour of a room and consequently to… CONTINUE READING
