Building materials and acoustics proposes to provide acoustic solutions that enrich the listening experience of human subjects in the room. Outdoor and building noise have a major impact on our sleep. In a room, a peaceful environment is needed to get a good sleep without being distracted by sound from within the building and outside world. In a theatre/concert hall and cinema the audiences require to hear the stage performance at sufficient level and of the best quality without being distracted by external noise. Careful design of buildings with improved acoustic features is essential in managing the quality of the perceived sound in the room. Sound absorbing materials and meta-materials could solve noise problems in building at some extent if they are used correctly in-built environment.
This special issue of Journal of Acoustics is about Building Materials and Acoustics. The aim of this special issue is to publish state-of-the-art research in different aspects of building materials and acoustics that will be contributing to improvement of human health and wellbeing and quality of human perception of sound in rooms.
- Room acoustics, including cinemas, theatres, schools, holy spaces etc.
- Acoustics for schools (classroom acoustics).
- Diffusers for closed spaces.
- Sound-absorbing materials.
- Metamaterials for buildings.
- Building vibration and control.
- Noise from household appliances, including heat pump noise.
- Low-frequency noise from houses.
- Sound insulation.
- Speech intelligibility and speech privacy in buildings.
- Auditorium design.
- Room physical acoustics.
- Smart acoustic windows.
I would like to invite academics/researchers to contribute to this special issue by submitting research papers, review papers, and case studies that incorporating computational, experimental, and theoretical research related to building materials and acoustics.
