FDTD animations looking at the sound reduction across the façade at Wadham College. The introduction of a cowl vent with a side hung opening improves the acoustic performance. Facing the door opening in the opposite direction further increases the reduction by level of diffracted sound.
This animation was produced using FDTD physics modelling software, developed by MACH Acoustics in conjunction with the world renowned Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) group at the University of Southampton.
