English abstract:
This paper addresses the use of performance simulation within the framework of a case study pertaining to room acoustics. The target of the study is an existing office area. The study involves acoustical measurements and simulations, as well as interviews with the occupants before and after acoustical improvement measures. The results of the study contribute to the discussion concerning the
effectiveness of acoustical simulation applications and the extent of necessary simulation calibration efforts in modeling the acoustical conditions in existing spaces and prediction of the implications of
acoustical retrofit measures. Specifically, they show that simulation model calibration based on preretrofit measurements can substantially improve the quality of simulation's predictions for the post-retrofit
