English abstract:
This paper includes the results of empirical measurements in and computational modeling of atria. Five atria with different shapes and configuration of surface elements were considered, representing a wide variety of designs. In each atrium reverbation times and sound distribution patterns were measured. Subsequently, the spaces were computationally modeled in a room acoustics simulation application. The comparison of measurement and simulation results allows not only to identify possible systematic deviations, but also formulate recommendations toward a more relaible use of modeling tools for the acoustical analysis of atria.
