Sound in the External Environment

Fri, 11/18/2011 - 4:15pm - 5:05pm
CCRMA Classroom, Knoll 217
Event Type: 
DSP Seminar
For this week's DSP Seminar, Rob Bullen will be talking about outdoor sound propagation.  Rob's talk covers things we understand and things we don't about external sound propagation, and includes some simple simulations as a starting point for modeling.  Rob's talk will be in the Classroom at 4:15 PM today.  Abstract follows.

Sound in the External Environment
Rob Bullen

In the outside environment, sound moves in sometimes-mysterious ways that involve ground impedance effects, refraction and turbulent scattering among other things.  Understanding these processes is important for noise control, but it also opens up possibilities for modelling and simulation, potentially providing another way to produce interesting sounds based on physically-based models.
