An Acoustical Engineer Expert Witness or consultant have expertise in how noise and sound is utilized, controlled, and optimized as they are trained in the many different and complex factors involved within the field.
The field of acoustical engineering is applicable to any industry involving sound.
Litigation requiring the use of an acoustical engineer may involve several different types of sounds and noise causing details, such as:
- Firearms and gunshot noise
- Electrical accidents
- Electrical fires
- Warning systems
- Other types of audio
This type of expert understands the dynamics of sound, having possibly designed the inside of a concert hall for optimized acoustics, the audibility of warning devices or signals, or the prevention of noise pollution in an airport or industrial setting.
Like other forms of engineering, there are also a series of codes and compliances an acoustical engineer must follow for safety purposes.
Prior cases involving acoustical engineering include:
- The failure of a house alarm to adequately warn the residents of an intruder
