Our objective is to promote the science and practice of acoustics. Our members are especially interested in problems associated with noise and noise control.
We are an incorporated society with branches in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Our membership is open to anyone with an interest in acoustics.
We hold regular branch meetings, seminars and a two-yearly conference. Our society journal, New Zealand Acoustics, is published quarterly, and is free for society members. The journal always includes an original research paper, as well as local news, information about people, products and events.
Many people have trouble conversing in trendy cafés and restaurants. That’s because noise levels are increasing. Design elements, coffee machines, music and clattering dishes all contribute to the din.
So we’ve developed a Café and Restaurant Acoustic Index (CRAI). Use our CRAI Rating Form to comment on noise levels at any café or restaurant you’ve visited. Or visit the NZ Acoustical Society website to find out how others have rated eateries in your area.
