York Minster is the largest medieval Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe, renowned for its magnificent architecture and its stained glass windows. Both acoustic measurements and simulation techniques have been used to analyse the acoustic environment of its Chapter House, which dates from the 13th-century and features an octagonal geometry with Got...

This work presents a software developed to design virtual manikins inside spaces with complex topology and high density of occupation. The software is used to design 330 typical seated occupants in a roman theatre or in an adapted auditorium. The virtual manikins are used by a numerical software in the evaluation of the occupants’ thermal comfort l...

Cathedrals are amongst the most significant buildings of European cultural heritage and are of great significance for the study of intangible heritage. This paper presents a detailed acoustic study of Ripon Cathedral, an English medieval cathedral whose history goes back to the 7th Century. Experimental and simulation techniques have been applied i...
Conference Paper
The acoustic environment of a cathedral is essential to its character, and part of its intangible cultural heritage, and therefore must be studied, preserved, and disseminated. This paper presents the acoustic study of Bristol cathedral, serving as a case study to detail the procedure followed to analyse the acoustic field of English cathedrals as...

El proyecto se apoya en el desarrollado previamente por el equipo con temática similar (BIA2010 20523) y se plantea como objetivo general: “conocer, recuperar, conservar, valorar y difundir el valor patrimonial acústico de las catedrales en configuraciones culturales o litúrgicas significativas, utilizando técnicas de realidad virtual, así como valorar la sensación acústica percibida en estos espacios e investigar la existencia de volúmenes acústicamente acoplados y su influencia sobre el campo sonoro”
