About This PhD Project

Project Description

Traditional research in auralisation focuses on the development of sound propagation and rendering algorithms for bounded geometries – that is, rooms, halls or any form of enclosed space. Of perhaps more importance is the simulation of sounds in the natural environment so that we might be able to more reliably model the acoustic results of small or large-scale, human interventions, such as a newly proposed road or railway projects. Developments like these have the potential for a significant impact on our wider health and wellbeing through their contribution to increased noise levels, with the resulting consequences for enforced change in the natural soundscape. This research will involve the analysis, simulation and rendering of natural soundscapes, the development of new virtual acoustic tools to better enable research in this area, and investigations into more effectively designed barriers and acoustic interventions to ameliorate the effects of such potential changes in our landscape.
