Wolfgang Ahnert leads acoustics seminar in Iran

Published: MEA

IRAN: Shidco and Fares Tech recently hosted a seminar on acoustics and architecture at Shahid Beheshti University International Conference Centre. The seminar was led by Wolfgang Ahnert, who besides having written several books on acoustics, is also the CEO of ADA and one of the founders of AFMG, the company responsible for EASE.

The seminar came about due to the relationship between Fares and ADA. The companies have worked together on many occasions and ADA has become the official acoustic consultant for a number of major construction projects in Iran. ‘During the meetings we had with the architectural designers of these projects, we realised their lack of knowledge on acoustics may cause serious problems in the final results. That was what gave us the idea of conducting this seminar with the coordination of the professor,’ said Amir Mosleh, CEO of Fares Tech. ‘Due to our agreement with Professor Anhert, we tend to mostly cover the practical issues related to acoustics. Although some theory seems inevitable.’

The seminar started with an introduction from Mr Mosleh before Professor Anhert presented four sessions. These covered room acoustics, general basics in acoustics, building acoustics and computational simulation. The seminar was completed with a Q&A session.

‘Major contractors and consultants were invited as well as some of the major directors of the government sector, such as the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Interior,’ noted Zohreh Vatefi, who organised the seminar. Statistics from the event show that 46 per cent of attendees had a bachelor’s degree, 48 per cent a master’s degree, and 6 per cent a PhD, demonstrating the importance of acoustics among academics. In addition, 63 per cent of the attendees were educated in architectural engineering.

‘This is the first time that a privately held company has conducted such a seminar with the intention to develop the knowledge of acoustics in Iran,’ stated Mehdi Moghadas Darab, the CEO of Shidco. ‘We hope that the engineers and designers who attended the seminar have found the lectures useful and that we could make a contribution to acoustic design in Iran.’
