Abstract


Contemporary architectonic design mostly relies on the software tools which enable the engineers to analyze multiple factors affecting a space, and to timely detect and correct certain errors in designing, resulting from attempting to satisfy certain aspects of a space at the expense of others. Those tools which apart from architecture itself also consider other fields of science, depending on the function of these areas are important; thus in the lecture halls designing process, adequate software for analysis is used. In addition to a number of acoustic parameters characterizing the acoustic response of a room, in terms of design, one of the most important factors affecting the acoustics of the indoor areas is reverberation time, which is characterized by the architectonic parameters: room volume (dimensions), shape (form) and materialization (finish material). In this paper, for the purposes of acoustic analysis of the A amphitheater, the parametric values obtained in two ways, by experimental measuring and by software - Autodesk Ecotect and Autodesk Revit Architecture are compared. The software is increasingly used in contemporary architectonic software because of the option to analyze acoustics of indoor space, so there is a need to analyzed the values provided by the software and compare them with actually measured reverberation time.
