End date The project is closed: 01/11/2015

The project is about the use of textile in an acoustic context and is in cooperation between SP, The Swedish School of Textiles and Chalmers. The goal is to understanding how textile materials can be used to enhance the acoustic properties for different type of rooms.  Class rooms have been studied as typical example. The building of a bridge between the worlds of textiles and acoustics is also an important goal with this project.


The project is carried out at the Division of Applied Acoustics.
