The Acoutect website has been launched, please visit http://www.acoutect.eu. The project contains information on our project, and it is possible to apply for the 15 open positions of Early Stage Researchers! Last but not least, there is a logo competition. Money prizes will be give to the best logo and a second will be raffled … More Acoutect open positions and logo competition!
Today I signed the contract as Associate Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology in the research field of Urban Acoustics! I am happy with this new step in my career and eager to continue the collaboration in and outside my research team. There are great challenges ahead of us. To mention some, we pursue on … More New position
We keep working on developments in the PSTD method and its open source software. On the software side, openPSTD v2.0 will be launched later this year. This version has our own user interface and the PSTD code is written in C++. The picture shows a glimpse of it. Keep an eye at http://www.openPSTD.org for the … More openPSTD update
The Applied Acoustics journal has just accepted our journal paper “Meteorological effects on the noise reducing performance of a low parallel wall structure”. A low parallel wall structure along major roads can reduce road traffic noise substantially. In this work we address the performance of this structure when meteorological effects do influence its noise reduction. … More New journal paper
The SONORUS project has finalized and summaries, views, experiences and research in the field of urban sound planning can be found in this booklet.
The proposal ‘Acoutect: A sound fundament for our future buildings’ has been granted by the European Commission as a H2020 Marie-Curie ITN project! I will be the coordinator of this 3.9M€ project and am proud to collaborate with the following partners: Aalto, KU Leuven, Liverpool and Chalmers (Universities), Materialize, Level Acoustics and Vibration, Matelys, Siemens, Moelven, … More ITN project granted!
My ten questions paper on computational urban acoustics is in press in the journal Building and Environment (it can be found here). The paper contains ten questions and answers related to the need for computational acoustics methods, the relevance of including various urban propagation effects in computational modelling, and to the preferable computational methods and … More Ten questions paper
