FVTD simulation of the acoustics of the Phonocamptic Cave in Noyon

Abstract : Starting from new measurements of the acoustical pots and room geometry in the phonocamptic cave at the Cathedral of Noyon, a numerical study was undertaken to understand the acoustical effects at the boundaries, and to provide an auralization of the space. An implementation of the finite volume time domain (FVTD) method was used to model the cave, including fitting the impedance presented by the acoustical pots on certain boundaries. The individual impedances of the pots were estimated from impulse responses collected pot-by-pot and parameterized in terms of a Helmholtz resonator model. Then, using the electroacoustic analogy, the sum effect of the pots was modeled as an equivalent spatial distribution in the FVTD boundary conditions. Additionally, the space was discretized with an unstructured mesh in order to capture the complex geometry, minimize dispersion error, and to check the accuracy of the FVTD implementation.
