Course description

Laboratory schools for the IOA diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control

The Acoustics Research Unit (ARU) specialises in research, supervision of postgraduate research study (PhD and MPhil), training, knowledge exchange and consultancy. The research focuses on airborne sound and structure-borne sound in the fields of engineering acoustics, building acoustics, room acoustics, audio acoustics, psychoacoustics, speech intelligibility, privacy and security, human vibration (including vibrotactile stimuli), environmental noise and industrial acoustics (sonic cleaning). Particular emphasis is placed on the development of prediction models with validation using laboratory experiments, development of new measurement procedures, and experimental studies on subjective evaluation.

In the last research assessment exercise, the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), the school was the highest ranked department submitted solely as a School of Architecture with a top six place for research intensity, a top ten place for grade point average and a top three place for research outputs, with 80% of our publications rated as world leading or internationally excellent.

Physically, the ARU offices and laboratories are situated in the Department of Engineering (Harrison Hughes building) at the University of Liverpool. These laboratories include an anechoic chamber, a semi-anechoic chamber, two reverberant chambers and an audiometric booth with state-of-the-art instrumentation for sound and vibration measurement.

PhD and MPhil studies by research are supervised by academic staff in the ARU and can either be registered in the School of Engineering or the School of Architecture depending on the topic and the preference of the candidate.

The ARU has a sustained record of success in obtaining research funding from research councils, UK government, European funding, industrial, manufacturing and commercial sources. In addition, the group has strong links with researchers in Brazil, China, France, Germany, Korea and Switzerland as well as with the UK Institute of Acoustics.
