Excel calculation files: Calculating Room Modes

    Excel calculation file: LINKWITZ LAB - Room Modes

      Excel calculation file: LINKWITZ LAB - Room Modes
      Room Modes: Another approach to evaluate Room Modes as per averaged room spacing based on a BBC approach R.Walker 1996. Theoretical background to be found in othe document.

       LINKWITZ LAB - Room acoustics
      General info related to speakers, RT60, Critical Distance (Room Radius), Standing waves, Room Modes etc. Not too complex but good. This link includes the theoretical approach to the LINKWITZ LAB room modes Excel file.

WAVES and MODES a room resonance calculator
This is a Microsoft Excel program for the PC that calculates the resonance frequencies for rectangular rooms, and that shows graphically the sound pressure distributions along the major axes of the room.

    Part Three: Getting the bass right
    This is Part 3 of "Loudspeakers and Rooms for Multichannel Audio Reproduction" explaining the use of the Excel File

    WAVES and MODES a room resonance calculator
    This is a Microsoft Excel program for the PC that calculates the resonance frequencies for rectangular rooms, and that shows graphically the sound pressure distributions along the major axes of the room. To use it, type your room dimensions into the WAVES component of the calculator. The dimensions are automatically entered into MODES. Its use is explained in Part 3 of "Loudspeakers and Rooms for Multichannel Audio Reproduction".

 Excel calculation file: Jeff D. Szymanski - Room Modes
is a spreadsheet from Jeff D. Szymanski that calculates normal room modes for rectangular spaces. Detailed instructions are included on the first sheet. A Bonello distribution curve is included with information on how to interpret the results.

On-Line calculation tools
Several on line calculation tools are available (often in Java script).

    Acoustics Software on-line
    The software on the links below is provided without any guarantee whatsoever. A recent browser will be required to run Java or JavaScript programs. The software can also be saved and run offline.

     CALCULATORS ON-LINE CENTER
    Currently the Calculators On-Line Center contains over "15,380" Calculators
    http://www-sci.lib.uci.edu/HSG/RefCalculators4.html  

     Engineering Toolbox
    Some interesting links to on-line tools, but also explaining acoustic notions and lots more.
    http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/Sound/SoundMain.htm  
           
     Steve Ekblad's Free Audio Software Page + On-Line Audio Tools
    Includes some speaker related on-line calculators for speakers (port calculation) and a few simple other ones.
    http://www.wssh.net/~wattsup/audio/  

     TROX Technik
    This is probably the only gasflow (ventilation) attenuator program on the net. This program allows to calculate the attentuation of splitter and circular attenuators (disadvantage, it's based on standard Trox products, advantage the used absorption material is mineral wool, so the results can be used).)

References to calculate other tuned Helmholtz resonators
This are not calculation files, but files explaining how to calculate other than slatt type Helmholtz resonators.

    IPA Acoustics Handbook: How to use perforated steel sheet
    This is a VERY GOOD publication of the Industrial Perforators Association (IPA), related to the use of perforted steel sheets, as wel for broadband absorption as well for tuned resonators.
