Validating an Acoustic Ray Tracing Simulation of a Chamber Music Hall
The well-known Konzerthaus Berlin theater boasts 3 separate halls: The Grand Hall, the Small Hall, and the modern Werner Otto Hall. Here, we explore the acoustics of the Small Hall with simulation.
Happy Birthday, Joseph Petzval
In 1840, this Hungarian physicist introduced a lens design that could gather more than 20 times as much light as lenses used in earlier cameras.
How Long Does It Take an Engineer to Turn on a Light Bulb?
Misconception about electricity: Electrons carry the energy in an electrical circuit. Today, we investigate this theory with simulation.
Visualizing the Emergence of Turing Patterns with Simulation
Turing patterns are often found in nature. The conditions behind the emergence of these patterns can be studied with chemical modeling.
The Science Behind Lie Detector Tests
Polygraph machines accurately monitor cardiovascular, respiratory, and electrodermal activity. But can they really determine whether a subject is being deceptive?
