Research and publications

Most of the following are short (8-10 page) technical papers presented to Institute of Acoustics conferences or written up in Acoustics Bulletin.  This includes the paper "Results of the NPL study into comparative room acoustic measurement techniques" which was a summary of a research project for National Measurement System Acoustics Metrology programme, for which NPL act as programme formulators to the Department of Trade and Industry.

The entire report "Workshop on Room Acoustics Measurements - Analysis of Comparative Measurements" is also included below as part of the Metrology programme commitment to publicly available research.  Before downloading please note that it is a relatively large file report (55 pages, 3.2MB).  NPL can be found at
