Why is it important?

This paper describes the noise levels in restaurants and presents a mathematical model that may eventually lead to better acoustical design of restaurants.


Noise in restaurants has been mentioned in magazines and social media. This paper is one of the first academic articles focusing on the noise issues in restaurants. Nevertheless, similar measurements shall be carried at different parts of the world so that we can generalize our findings.
