Auralization - Fundamentals of Acoustics, Modelling, Simulation, Algorithms and Acoustic Virtual Reality


 

This is the first focused and detailed textbook on acoustic virtual reality. Auralization is the creation of audible acoustic sceneries from computer-generated data. The term 'auralization' is to be understood as being analogue to the well-known technique of 'visualization'. In visual illustration of scenes, data or any other meaningful information, in movie animation and in computer graphics, we describe the process of 'making visible' as visualization. In acoustics, auralization is taking place when acoustic effects, primary sound signals or means of sound reinforcement or sound transmission, are processed to be presented by using electro-acoustic equipment. This book is organized as a comprehensive collection of basics, methodology and strategies of acoustic simulation and auralization.


Michael Vorländer became director of the institute and professor of technical acoustics at RWTH Aachen University, Germany, in 1996. After education in physics and a doctorate degree in 1989 he worked in various fields of acoustics, mainly architectural acoustics and binaural technology.
His main areas of research are room acoustics, building acoustics, psychoacoustics, acoustic measurements, virtual acoustics.
Professor Vorländer is active  in international societies, like
2004 - 2007 President of the European Acoustics Association (EAA)
2007 - 2010 Vice President of the European Acoustics Association (EAA)
2004 - Board of the International Commission for Acoustics (ICA)
