Abstract

A number of European concert halls were surveyed in 1989. In this paper comparisons are made between measured room acoustical parameters and those obtained from computer simulations on concert halls using the odeon program version 3.1. The key parameter compared with measured data is the reverberation time, and this is mainly used to adjust the absorption data of the surfaces in the computer model. But five additional parameters are calculated and compared with measured data as well. In order to determine the sensitivity of the computer model, comparisons are also made between the results obtained from computer simulations using models with a high geometrical fidelity and those from models with simplifications to geometry that are in better agreement with the laws of high-frequency modeling.
