Working Group on Acoustics in Open-Plan Schools and Offices

This working group formed within TC-RBA proposes to share experience and promote research in the areas of:

  • Sound propagation in large rooms with furniture
  • The use of relevant acoustical criteria like STI, S-N ratio, DL2 etc.


As an introduction to the discussion, please see the paper by Claus Moeller Petersen: "Acoustics in open-plan schools and day-care centres - problems and opportunities."


The working group can work electronically and find place for meeting in specific workshops. The organization of structured sessions in future conferences will also be considered.
