Virtual Scene Handling for implementation of sound insulation filters for Building acoustics auralization
Master Thesis of Pengcheng, Zhao
For building acoustics auralization in virtual reality, the development and implementation of sound insulation models (i.e. airborne and structure borne transmission etc.) are required to be incorporated in virtual building structures. The sound insulation models describe the performance of the building elements from where we can evaluate the overall performance of the buildings in terms of noise and comfort. Once the sound insulation models are developed these models are implemented in graphic software such as SketchUp. In this master thesis, the focus is on handling the virtual building scenarios in the SketchUp and rendering the corresponding sound transmission filters to auralize the perception of the buildings under study. Furthermore, plugins will be developed to create an interface between the sound insulation auralization renderer and the virtual scenarios in order to design, analyse and auralize the buildings in interactive manners.
