  1. 1. Exploring Urban Soundscapes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Kristin Nedlich; [2020]
    Keywords : Architecture; urban; environment; sound; psychoacoustics; exploration; Arts and Architecture;

    Abstract : My intent with this thesis is to explore urban sound and architectural drawing techniques which can be used to represent sound qualities in existing or projected areas. By using experiential data, I will investigate methods and various sets of diagrams and drawings to illustrate psychoacoustical qualities in urban environments... READ MORE

  2. 2. An indicative case-control study of noise perception due to environmental noise sources

    University essay from KTH/Marcus Wallenberg Laboratoriet MWL

    Author : Marcus Johansson ; [2020]
    Keywords : Noise perception; Psychoacoustics; Environmental noise; Bullerpåverkan; Psykoakustik; Samhällsbuller;

    Abstract : The subject of the thesis was proposed by the acoustic consultancy firm Brekke & Strand, which is of relevance for their additional understanding and development of services and contribution to robust solutions. The aim with this thesis is to give indicative results and to dig deeper into the relation between environmental noise and the perception of the same, specially focusing on construction related noise but also permanent noise sources that originates from infrastructure.

  3. 3. Evaluation of outdoor environment in preschools using the soundscape approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper; Lunds universitet/Teknisk akustik

    Author : Semir Caban; [2020]
    Keywords : Soundscape; statistical analysis; psychoacoustics; outdoor sound environment; sound environment in preschools.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Exposure to high levels of noise may affect a person’s health and behavior. A lot of education in Swedish preschool occurs outdoor, which makes having good sound environment important for the children and the teachers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Is there a correlation between the natural reverberation in a critical listening environment and adjustments of an artificial reverb?

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för konst, kommunikation och lärande

    Author : Marcus Brandberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Audio engineering; acoustics; control room; reverberation; reverberation time; psychoacoustics; mixing; reverb; Ljudteknik; akustik; kontrollrum; ljud; efterklang; efterklangstid; psychoakustik;

    Abstract : One of the mixing engineers most important tool when listening, analyzing and taking decisions is the physical space in which the reproduction system and the monitors are placed. The space needs to fulfill certain aspects to be able to qualify as a control room considered good for taking these decisions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Performance and Perceived Realism in Rasterized 3D Sound Propagation for Interactive Virtual Environments

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för programvaruteknik; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för programvaruteknik

    Author : Karl Hansson; Mikael Hernvall; [2019]
    Keywords : psychoacoustics; rasterization; hardware-acceleration; psykoakustik; rasterisering; hårdvaruacceleration;

    Abstract : Background. 3D sound propagation is important for immersion and realism in interactive and dynamic virtual environments. However, this is difficult to model in a physically accurate manner under real-time constraints. READ MORE
