Abstract: Sound propagation is a complex subject, especially in an enclosure. The study of room acoustics involves not only a research into how sound is propagated in a room, but also a search into how to measure sound under different condition and how to control sound in the case of various wall materials. For an acoustical environment, there are three separated parts: sound sources, room acoustics, and the listens. These three items form a source-medium-receiver chain, which is typical for most of communication models. In this thesis, the image method is applied to predict the acoustical quality of a real room, and the experiment for room acoustic measurement is set up. The simulation model using image method proved the design of the measurement system is efficient for room acoustics.
