A Computational Acoustic Model of the Coupled Interior Architecture of Ancient Chavín

We present a physical, modular computational acoustic model of the well-preserved interior architecture at the 3,000-year-old Andean ceremonial center Chavv?n de Huv°ntar. Our previous model prototype [Kolar et. al. 2010] translated the acoustically coupled topology of Chavv?n gallery forms to a model based on digital waveguides (bi-directional by definition), representing passageways, connected through reverberant scattering junctions, representing the larger room-like areas. Our new approach treats all architectural units as ‚Äúreverberant‚Äù digital waveguides, with scattering junctions at the discrete planes defining the unit boundaries. In this extensible and efficient lumped-element model, we combine architectural dimensional and material data with sparsely measured impulse responses to simulate multiple and circulating arrival paths between sound sources and listeners.
