Saint Sergius & Bacchus church from 527 was modelled as part of the CAHRISMA project (Conservation of the Acoustical Heritage by the Revival and Identification of the Sinan’s Mosques Acoustics). Sergius & Bacchus is a typical byzantine church, with a central dome and an ambulatorium. It has a reverberation time of around 3 sec (1000 Hz).

Measurements were simulated with 2 sources in 10 receiver positions – here we are having a look around the room.

Below you may download an ODEON zip archive for the above example, which is a packaged ODEON model (for ODEON 15.15 Auditorium or Combined) containing all the necessary files to run it: material list, geometry, source and receiver placements, etc. ODEON zip archives may also contain the calculated jobs, however, the file below does not include the calculated jobs. You may find ODEON zip archives for other examples here.

To unzip an ODEON zip file:

  1. Launch ODEON
  2. Go to File > Zip > Unzip archive
  3. Select your downloaded ODEON zip file
  4. Select a folder to extract the files 
 

ODEON will then automatically load the room.
