Acoustic reverberation

The acoustic reverberation is a phenomenon that consists in the permanence of the sound wave inside a room or area, even after the sound source has stopped to emit it. This occurs when the sound wave "bounce" onto very smooth surfaces, and is reflected in the surrounding environment.

This phenomenon can be particularly annoying if the sound tails and sounds previously issued interfere excessively with the sounds that are progressively generated, masking them and preventing their understanding.

In large rooms such as theaters, conference rooms, auditoriums, classrooms, churches, restaurants, etc., the proper acoustic behavior of the space is therefore essential for proper usability of such structures.
