Acoustics Laboratory

Acoustics Laboratory
With over 40 years’ experience in acoustics, we are home to some of the most specialised facilities in the country, including a small reverberation room, anechoic chamber (16m³) and an audiometry room for hearing measurements.

Our equipment is capable of measuring  sound power levels using ISO 3740, reverberation and other room acoustic parameters, field measurements of airborne and structure-borne sound insulation, and structural and human vibration.

Some of the courses that use these facilities include Acoustics and Noise Control, Environmental Health, and Safety, Health and Environmental Management.
