Digital reconstruction of the organ and the Chapelle de la Sorbonne

PhD position
3 years

We have an urgent funding opportunity for a PhD on the Digital reconstruction of the organ and the Chapelle de la Sorbonne.

Thesis topic: The PhD project consists of the virtual reconstruction of the organ and the acoustics of the chapel, based on available documentation. The goal is a numerical simulation of the acoustic functioning of the pipes of the organ, the radiation of these pipes in the buffet, and the acoustic radiation of the buffet into the church. While most of the modeling components of these elements are known and described by acoustic theories, the modeling and simulation of the whole represents a major scientific challenge: over a thousand pipes (1365 to be precise) represent an ensemble of non-linear acoustic oscillators that radiate in a subspace (the buffet), itself coupled to the acoustic volume of the chapel.
