Abstract

Traditionally room acoustics prediction models have been ray-based (geometrical) and thus ignore phase. Wave-based models on the other hand, make use of phase information to properly determine interference phenomena. This paper outlines some preliminary studies performed on two-dimensional geometries to compare these two classes of methods
