Interests: integration of energy saving technologies (green roofs, double skin facades) in buildings; architectural acoustics (sound propagation, energy decay, shape optimization) and building acoustics (noise insulation, new natural materials); building simulation; sustainability assessment at building, community and city level
Acoustics is an important aspect in buildings. People's perceptions of acoustic comfort and satisfaction are influenced by many parameters such as the room shape, building materials, and their location. However, most of the existing buildings are often suffering significant acoustic issues. Meanwhile, our knowledge of the principles of preferred acoustics in performance spaces is still limited, partly because we have not yet developed a complete understanding of the criteria which guide acoustical appreciation in a room. Architectural and Building acoustics is the subject of this special issue.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- architectural acoustics
- room acoustics
- sound insulation in buildings
- acoustic properties of building materials
We provide a discount of 50% to the authors for this special issue.
