3D Acoustic Modelling
What 3D Acoustic / Noise Model services do we offer you?
Acoustic Associates have used CATT-Acoustics on a wide variety of projects including BB93 Schools Acoustics, Concert Hall Design, Church Acoustics, Shopping Centres, Live-Room Design, Recording Studio Design, Lecture Theatres, Drama Studios and Multi-Purpose Spaces. Different rooms will have different acoustic requirements:
- For a school classroom or a lecture room, audibility and speech intelligibility of the teacher's voice is paramount. To attain suitable acoustic conditions requires that the reverberation time (i.e. the amount of time it takes for the echo of sound to decay) in the room be within certain limits and that other acoustic anomalies are avoided.
- CATT-Acoustics enables us to predict the acoustic performance of a room accurately before building takes place. The CATT-Acoustics computer modelling program allows us to work out the best possible acoustic treatment for your purpose and budget.
What is CATT-Acoustics?
CATT-Acoustics is predictive computer software that allows us to create a 3D model of a room and then determine how it will perform acoustically. We will use CATT-Acoustics before the building process, to offer advice to an architectural design team. We also use CATT-Acoustics for existing rooms; acoustically, these could be rooms that are not performing as required or, alternatively, the room's use is going to change to one where the acoustics will become important.
