Egyptian Relic Curse Solved By 24 Acoustics

The rotating Egyptian statue at Manchester Museum: An explanation by Steve Gosling, 24 Acoustics Introduction 24 Acoustics Ltd was asked by Shiver TV to participate in a forthcoming new TV programme “Mystery Map” to investigate the possible cause of why an Egyptian statue mysteriously rotates in a locked display cabinet at the Manchester Museum (The University of Manchester).

The Sound of Old School Formula 1 Mapped in London

As a technical R&D exercise to extend in house noise mapping abilities, engineers from 24 Acoustics have created an animation of a F1 car from 2013 racing up The Mall in Central London. The animation is made up from a series of noise maps, each incorporating a unique speed, location and source noise level from the car.  The exercise involved the creation of more than 1,200 individual noise maps, comprising a total of 221 million data points.

Bow Bells and the London Cockney

According to tradition, in order to qualify as a true London Cockney, you must be born with earshot of the bells from St. Mary-Le-Bow Church in London 24 Acoustics has recently worked with The Times Atlas of London to determine the extent of the audibility of the bells today, in 2012 and also in 1851 at the time of the Great Exhibition. This involved extensive noise surveys whilst the bells were tolling and detailed propagation modelling and consideration of background noise throughout north-east London to determine the level of audibility. Further information is available on the Times Atlas of London website or by contacting 24 Acoustics by clicking here. By Reuben Peckham
