Acoustic solutions for Museums:
Our Acoustic solutions for Museum can be see now in One of the most marvellous exciting places in Bursa / Turkey to visit, it is the Panoramic
Museum in Bursa and it is the largest full panoramic museum in the world that consists of a main theme revitalization hall, exhibition halls and meeting rooms, cafeteria, and administrative departments.
The foundation was laid on 15 September 2015, On November 1, 2018, was
opened. Construction area: 4.500 m² / Usage area: 8.388 m²
The panoramic museum is telling the story of the history of Bursa from the day that the old city has been conquered by the Ottoman, and as well the story of the 6 Ottoman sultans who buried in Bursa.
In the entrance of the Museum you can find 16 paintings describing the social life in their time. of the big 6 Ottoman sultans .

Can you imagine the noise which can propagate there?
Acoustical and physical researchers appreciate the reverberation time of this kind of climes about 11 s. In other words, noise pollution.
This value is due to many factors, let us analyse them one by one:

And then see how our Acoustic solutions for Museums can help …

  1. Enormous space volume which is proportional parameter to reverberation time.
  2. The existence of reflection surfaces.
  3. Low sound absorptivity because of the lack of areas that have high
    absorption coefficients.
    The impact of noise on workers and visitors as well can cause serious health damages and problems.
    So how can they adjust this to make cosy place to sound?
    Acoustima® found Acoustic solutions for this Museum by applying perfect sound insulation and noise reduction by consultation specialist acoustical engineers.
    The operation needs two basic steps the first one deals with architectural acoustic (the science and engineering of achieving a good sound within a building and is a branch of acoustical engineering.), in other words, the structure, shape, size, and constitution of the building. On the other hand,
    whereas, room acoustic is considered a strongly effective solution that depends on additional components have high sound absorption coefficient reach up to 0.9 which called ACOUSTIC PANELS.

Acoustic solutions for Museum by using Acoustic panels are sound absorbing panels that are hung on a wall or ceiling to control and reduce noise, eliminate slap echo in a room. The objective is to enhance the properties of sound by improving sound quality and soundproofing which concludes any means of reducing the sound pressure with respect to a specified sound source and receptor.
These sound absorbing panels come in a large variety of sizes, types and
colours to meet your design, budgetary, and durability requirements.
Absorbing sound spontaneously converts part of the sound energy to a very small amount of heat in the intervening object (the absorbing material), rather than sound being transmitted or reflected. There are several ways in which a material can absorb sound.

The choice of sound absorbing material will be determined by the frequency distribution of noise to be absorbed and the acoustic absorption profile required.

in the museum:
To apply Acoustic solutions for Museum at the first floor; you can see the
auditoriums which display a movie about the ancient culture of Turkey, you can notice that the auditorium is acoustically designed by adding perforated, wooden acoustic panels on the walls which efficiently absorb the sound by means of reducing the noise in the Auditorium.

Also; there are wooden suspending ceiling acoustical panels which it absorbs addition; it contains acoustical seats generally made from foams and has high acoustic properties, and each auditorium has a Soundproof acoustic door which commonly made from wood are an ideal cost-effective solution because it does not need much coating but absorbs sound by its self moreover, they are suitable for a wide variety of applications in any room, office or hall.

out of the auditoriums; there is a big field in the middle designed as non-
parallel wall; it has a semi-circle shape; the walls’ shape can highly kill the
reflected sounds thats lead to minimize the noise and the reverberation time inside it.

this field look like a small amphi-theater and the stairs has seats with
acoustic properties, the ceiling is full with the wooden acoustic panels which have the shape of compact slats has a very small gap between each others, aproximmetly thes panels has NRC value around 0.88.

On the right hand of the field, there is a small fair shows the green tomb tiles that used in building the historical green mosque in Bursa. This type of tiles represents the first ceramic art in Turkey. These ceramic tiles was used to improve the acoustical and thermal performance of the floating floor to reduce the walking noise side by side of giving the place an unique, wonderful and surprised aesthetic view.

Next to the fair there is a gift shop, has a cylindrical shape with also wooden suspending ceiling and its roof has un expected, huge and fantastic optical acoustical canopy in the middle of it which plays an important rule in the acoustical control by means of provide a comfortable and un-noisy corner with also high-quality, simple shape and colourful seats at the roof of the shop.

On the other side, you can notice a library contains some wooden tables and foam chairs, there is also wooden shelves contains numbers of historical books, and its ceiling is installed by the same acoustic panels at the interring hall in the middle of the museum.

Finally, in the corner you can notice a small cafe to take a rest after this
interesting tour inside the museum, which bring comfort inside you by its
design which has wooden tables, wooden acoustic panels on the ceiling and
wooden bar as well as the foam seats has a brownish color which perfectly
goes with the wooden tables.
In the second floor there is the panoramic part that depicts the conquest day in a 360-degree circular cycle and tells the journey of Bursa from Beylikdian to Cihan State.

This new museum that opened in 2019 can tell us how much is the Acoustic
solutions for Museum important to give the comfortable environment without any ambient noise to the visitor and achieve the mission of the project successfully.
