Modelling Hyperboloid Sound Scattering

Peters, B. (Lecturer)

Activity: Talk or presentation Lecture and oral contribution


Lecture at 2011 Design Modelling Symposium, Berlin.
The Responsive Acoustic Surfaces workshop project described here sought new understandings about the interaction between geometry and sound in the arena of sound scattering. This paper reports on the challenges associated with modelling, simulating, fabricating and measuring this phenomenon using both physical and digital models at three distinct scales. The results suggest hyperboloid geometry, while difficult to fabricate, facilitates sound scattering.
