Membership of the EAA

Announcement January 1st, 2021.

The Association of Acoustic Consultants of Ireland (AACI) is the European Acoustics Association’s (EAA’s) membership society for the Republic of Ireland, since late December 2020. This further strengthens and aligns the Republic of Ireland’s involvement with our European partners, allowing for the continued development of acoustics and acoustic research within the Republic. With the UK’s departure from the EU, the AACI Committee see the associate EAA membership as a strategic opportunity to progress the objectives of both the AACI and EAA within the Republic of Ireland and Europe.

The AACI seek to promote the objectives of the European Acoustics Association to promote and spread the science of acoustics, its technologies and applications throughout Europe and the entire world. The EAA seek to interface with associations whose activities are related to acoustics, in order to promote the development and progress of acoustics in its different aspects and applications.

While the AACI have strong industry-based links, it is proposed that the AACI will further strengthen links with Universities and Technical Institutes to ensure that acoustic research with the Republic of Ireland is closely aligned with the AACI and EAA.

The Committee of the AACI are delighted to embrace the objectives of the European Acoustics Association and are proud to be their membership society in the Republic of Ireland.

Another qualified member joins AACI

The AACI has great pleasure in welcoming another qualified noise consultant to the group. Mr. Derek McCreanor of Enhance Acoustics works as an acoustic consultant who is a practice owner,  specialising in architectural acoustics and environmental noise.

International Year of Sound

The International Year of Sound is a global initiative to highlight the importance of sound and related sciences and technologies for all in society. The International Year of Sound will consist of coordinated activities on regional, national and international levels. These activities will aim to stimulate the understanding throughout the world of the important role that sound plays in all aspects of our society. As well, these activities will also encourage an understanding of the need for the control of noise in nature, in the built environment, and in the workplace.

Sound plays an important role in all human activities and applications of acoustics are found in almost all aspects of modern society. Subdisciplines include aeroacoustics, audio, signal processing, architectural acoustics, bioacoustics, electro-acoustics, environmental noise, musical acoustics, noise control, hearing and psychoacoustics, physical acoustics, speech, ultrasound, underwater sound and vibration. Sound is an essential part of communication between humans – in the form of speech, as a sound of warning, and also in music and creative sounds. However there is a concern about too much sound, which then becomes noise and needs to be controlled to ensure acceptable and safe living and working environments.

The Association of Acoustic Consultants of Ireland are proud to assist with the promotion of this wonderful event. Watch this space.
