11 European concert halls
In 1989 measurements were performed in 11 European Concert Halls by Anders Christian Gade from the Technical University of Denmark. Report No. 44, 1989. Acoustical survey of Eleven European Concert Halls – a basis for discussion of halls in Denmark by Ander Christian Gade, ISSN 0105-3027.
Room models of the same 11 halls were made in Odeon around 2001 by Hiroyoshi Shiokawa and co-workers from Nihon University, Japan. A publication about Shiokawas work is available in PDF. The conclusions of this publication are based on an Odeon version from before 2005. In 2005 the reflection based scattering was introduced taking into account the surface size or distance to a surface as a diffraction factor. Today Odeon performs much better calculations with the detailed models as available below, but note that these room models are only put out to give a rough idea of the acoustics in the 11 famous halls, it does not have very precise input data and it is not a Round Robin test.
We have updated the models to be available in the installation of versions 10 and 11, for comparison with your own concert hall projects. Absorption coefficients in the available models have been estimated based on description of the materials from the measurement report from 1989 and on the measured reverberation time at the time.
