Cloud-Based Architectural Acoustics Simulations
Presentation of the problem and objective of the experiment
Acoustics in the built environment has a major influence on the health, well-being and productivity of people. To design and optimize acoustics in buildings, acoustic engineers typically resort to simulations. However, due to the large size of these computational problems, current simulation tools resort to significant approximations in their approach. These approximations lead to imprecise simulations and ineffective workflows, hindering the AEC industry from ensuring appropriate acoustic conditions in buildings.
Short description of the experiment
This experiment concerns investigating the applicability of using Treble Technologies’ proprietary acoustic simulation technology, which is based on high-performance computing, and cutting-edge numerical methods, to enable a new paradigm in acoustic simulations for building design. This new paradigm has the potential to enable the engineering acoustics industry to reduce risk, cut costs, improve quality of designs and, ultimately, improve acoustics and reduce noise in the built environment. We will conduct various benchmark studies, to investigate the added value that this new simulation paradigm brings to the industry, e.g., in the form of improved accuracy and improved workflow.
