Title Prediction of sound levels in cluttered industrial premises using RAYSCAT, an acoustical prediction software product
Original title Prévision des niveaux sonores dans les locaux industriels encombrés à l'aide du logiciel d'acoustique prévisionnelle RAYSCAT [in French]
Bibliographic information 1st Quarter 1991, No.142, Note No.1813-142-91, p.41-53. Illus. 22 ref.
Abstract This article describes the RAYSCAT computer model usable for the prediction of noise levels in cluttered premises. This model takes into account both the geometry of the room and the areas with different fittings. Experimental results obtained in a test room are presented and compared with those obtained by numberical simulation using the RAYSCAT model. There was a very good correlation between the experimental results and those obtained using RAYSCAT.
