Odeon Industrial and Odeon Combined includes extended source types, namely line source, surface source and multi surface source. This allows accurate modelling of industrial environments where the sound sources are not well represented by point sources.
The industrial machinery hall Studstrup was investigated in the Elsam project. Read more about this research in two conference papers from 1998 and 1999, by Claus Lynge Christensen and Hans Torben Foged.
ODEON Features for industrial environments
|Global reverberation time estimate||Very fast and accurate, takes into account the room geometry and the distribution of absorption materials and surface scattering|
|Calculation of sound pressure level in selected positions, octave bands and A-weighted||Useful for comparison with noise limits|
|Mapping of room acoustic parameters in grids||Overview of sound distribution; easy to localise hot spots|
|Calculation of spatial decay rate, DL2||Used for evaluation of the acoustic attenuation with distance in a room|
|Calculated STI (Speech Transmission Index)||Used for evaluation of speech privacy in open plan spaces|
|Large sound sources can be modelled using lines, surfaces and boxes||Important for an accurate acoustic modelling of halls with large noise sources|
|Transmisson Loss of surfaces between rooms can be specified||Prediction of sound level in adjacent rooms|
