Shining a light on the 'dark art' of acoustics consultancy
At ParkerJones Acoustics we have a strong emphasis on clear communication. We enjoy taking our clients along the ‘journey’ of the acoustic design process in as simple and transparent a manner as possible.
We appreciate that acoustic consultants are often labelled as sorcerers of a ‘dark art’, and we can understand why. This is why we feel it important to explain the concepts of acoustic design and try to simplify things down, using as little jargon as possible. After all, what does 45 Rw mean, and what on earth is a DnT,w + Ctr? Sound power? Sound pressure? Sound intensity?
The aim of our ‘insights’, or in simple terms… articles, are to educate. They are primarily written for non acoustic consultants, stripping out some of the nitty gritty jargon and getting to the basics.
And please, if we haven’t written about it already, do get in touch and suggest a topic, or just ask us a question. Our noise consultants are always happy to answer.
Breaking down complex acoustic terms and concepts in a simplistic and straightforward fashion, our articles are aimed at giving our clients a sound understanding of noise and vibration.
