At 27 September, Juan Emilio Noriega Linares from the university of Murcia (UCAM) defended his PhD thesis ‘Analysis of the sound field and the annoyance of noise pollution in cities with the use of sensor networks’. I witnessed his defence as member of the doctorate committee. Congrats Juan Emilio!
Members of my research team will present progress of recent research at various conferences in June and July. The overview of our papers can be found here.
Two journal papers from our group have recently been accepted or publication. One paper is part of the stage acoustics PhD project of Remy Wenmaekers, titled ‘Sensitivity of stage acoustic parameters to source and receiver directivity: Measurements on three stages and in two orchestra pits‘, published Applied Acoustics. The other paper is on the role of … More Two new Journal papers

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
