Diffusion, Scattering related to Reverb
Reverberation time, diffuse reflection, Sabine, and computerized prediction - part I
What effect has diffuse reflection on the RT? Will diffuse reflection always affect the RT? What effect has diffuse reflection on Sabine RT estimates? Will not formulas such as Fitzroy and Arau-Puchades solve the problem?
Reverberation time, diffuse reflection, Sabine, and computerized prediction - part II
Does diffuse reflection have to be taken into account? How can diffuse reflection be handled in a CP program? Must diffuse reflection be handled with frequency dependence? How can scattering coefficients be estimated? How will diffuse reflection affect auralization?
The Haas Effect
Haas Effect Also called the precedence effect, describes the human psychoacoustic phenomena of correctly identifying the direction of a sound source heard in both ears but arriving at different times. The Haas Effect tells us that humans localize a sound source based upon the first arriving sound, if the

Helmholtz - Who he was, what he did.
Hermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz. Born: 31 Aug 1821 in Potsdam, Germany; Died: 8 Sept 1894 in Berlin, Germany.

A Helmholtz resonator or Helmholtz oscillator is a container of gas (usually air) with an open hole (or neck or port). A volume of air in and near the open hole vibrates because of the 'springiness' of the air inside. A common example is an empty bottle: the air inside vibrates when you blow across the top.

A VERY GOOD SITE. A huge number of cross-links will guide you through lots of acoustic toppics.
The objective of environmental noise control is to improve the acoustic environment in a community by reducing noise levels. Noise from industrial operations can affect neighboring residential areas, ranging from intolerable noise levels to structural vibrations. Well-planned noise control can eliminate a major component of an industrial site’s impact on its surrounding environment. Noise control is based on what we know about how sound behaves. For this reason, our look at some of the fundamentals of environmental noise control begins with basic descriptions of sound and noise, acoustic materials, and attenuation.
