The e-book “Illuminating Acoustic Reflection Orders Using SketchUp + Light Rendering” by J. Parkman Carter is now available on the Newman Fund webpage. This e-book was developed with partial support from a Schultz Grant, provided by the Newman Student Award Fund!
Check out the series of four YouTube videos on Architectural Acoustics, produced by Dr. Michael Ermann (Virginia Tech) with partial support from a Schultz Grant, provided by the Newman Student Award Fund!
We are pleased to announce that the 2014 Schultz Grant has been awarded to J. Parkman Carter, a student at RPI, for his proposal on “Illuminating Acoustic Reflection Orders in Architecture Using Sketchup”! Mr. Carter is presenting the research that accompanied the grant proposal (and on which he will base his further work) at the Acoustical Society of America meeting in Providence this week.
The next Theodore John Schultz Grant is expected to be awarded in 2014, with applications due by January 31, 2014. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a letter describing how the grant will be used, and an outline budget indicating expenses for which support is being sought. For more information, please click on the Schultz Grant tab.
A 36 minute video produced in 1990 by Professor Gary W. Siebein, “Demonstration of Basic Acoustical Principles using Scale Models” with funding from a Schultz Grant, has now been converted from VHS and posted onto YouTube! Enjoy!
The Newman Fund is pleased to offer PDF versions of two previous Schultz Grant projects: the 2000 Architectural Acoustics Workbook by David Egan, and the 2011 Electronic Sound System Design by Neil Thompson Shade. We are working on obtaining electronic versions of all Schultz Grant projects, so that they may be made available through this website. Stay tuned!
