Acoustics is involved in just about every aspect of our lives. ‘Sound’ is a vital component to the quality of our lives, it is how we communicate and it gives us pleasure.
'Noise’, on the other hand, can irritate us, makes us feel stressed and stops us sleeping. The World Health Organization says that excessive noise seriously harms human health and interferes with people’s daily activities at school, work, home and during leisure time. It can cause adverse cardiovascular and psychophysiological effects, reduce performance and provoke changes in social behaviour.
