Acoustics expert witnesses may be sought out for a variety of cases involving the use of sound, as acoustics refers to the physics of sound and how it is applied in different contexts. Acoustics expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as mechanical engineering, computer science, bioengineering, aeronautical engineering, electrical engineering, electrical contracting, general contracting, voice identification, audio and electronic system design, industrial engineering, safety engineering, architecture, and acoustical design, each of which may be related to an acoustics-related lawsuit.
Acoustics expert witnesses are often knowledgeable with architectural engineering because of the importance of noise control in various types of buildings and other housing structures. Many building projects, such as classrooms, concert halls, auditoriums, and stadiums, are optimized for effective sound quality. While acoustics are very important in such locations, noise control regarding safety must be considered, since disruptive noise can be both a nuisance and hazard for many individuals.
Acoustics expert witnesses may also be asked to provide expert opinions based on the results of an audio analysis. Audio may have forensic applications in that it can be used to identify individuals and serve as potential evidence. Acoustics experts may also be asked to evaluate the effects of sound in relation to environmental noise, which can also be the basis of a possible lawsuit.
