NAG Meetings 1-20-16 and 2-10-16

For 2016, we have decided to hold NAG meetings monthly through the academic year, rather than every two to three weeks.  At the January meeting, Brenna Boyd discussed the current state-of-the-art related to acoustics in Building Information Modeling (BIM).  BIM is being used more and more widely in the design and construction of buildings, and we discussed how acoustics could be more successfully integrated into the BIM process.  The ‘acoustic nugget’ discussed photoacoustic imaging, specifically the scholarly work of Dr. Lihong Wang as featured on NPR.  At February’s NAG meeting, Jay Bliefnick presented on the results of a number of measurement trials he made with new room acoustic measurement equipment in the NAG lab.  The nugget featured Manchester’s Beetham Tower which produces eerie howls particularly windy days.  See it captured on social media!
