Rain Noise  Study on Light-weight Roofs and Measurement/Reduction Methodology

Under the  direction of Prof. Qin Youguo; This research has recorded legitimated  corrections on the results of artificial rain noise experiment. Both the  study of comparing rain noise from the same lightweight roof between  artificial raindrops in lab and real rains in field, and the long-term  rain noise measurements are unprecedented by other researchers

Acoustic  design of Beijing National Grand Theater

Acoustic  design of broadcasting Studio, recording studio, practice room, theater,  opera house, and concert hall. Vibration reduction study and engineering  design of recording studio. Engineering study and design of under seat  perforated cylindrical ventilation system.

Computer  Simulation of Acoustic Environment in Buildings and Open Areas

SPL mapping of  Tsinghua University Campus Area; SPL and RASTI analysis of Beijing  Olympic Cycling Stadium; SPL mapping of Beijing-Tianjing high-speed  railway; Acoustic design based on computer simulation for various  auditoriums, such as Daqing Cultural Center, Luoyang Grand Theater, etc.
