Overview

Welcome to Olive Tree Lab 3.0 a suite of 3D acoustical software applications in one working environment. These applications are, Room Acoustics (OTL – Room), Open Plan Office (OTL-Office) and Outdoor Sound Propagation, (OTL -Terrain). 

....think of OTL-Suite as the equivalent of MS Office in Acoustics, many applications talking to each other seamlessly

OTL-3.0 is the first ever acoustical software application which offers such flexibility among calculations in the various fields of acoustics within the same environment. No more transferring incompatible data from one application to another. 


Olive Tree Lab –Terrain, the first product by PEMARD, launched in 2011 and now version 3.0, deals with outdoor sound propagation with surgical accuracy calculations in noise barriers design and assessing noisy outdoor environments. It also includes ISO 9613-2.






Olive Tree Lab – Room, addresses room acoustical design of performing spaces and/or typical rooms and provides ISO 3382 Parts 1 & 2 acoustical parameters by which one can evaluate the acoustical quality of the spaces under study






Olive Tree Lab - Office based on ISO 3382 Part 3, deals with the optimisation of open plan offices in terms of speech privacy and work distraction by activities in neighbouring working stations.








Multilayered Structure Builder and Sound Distribution and Scattering Polar Plotter. 
Calculation tools for:
  • Surface impedance of  materials and multilayered structures, based on the Transfer Matrix Method.  
  • Sound distribution and scattering of auditorium sound reflectors and scattering effects from noise barriers.

OTL-3.0 is the first acoustical software application to include a multilayered structure builder based on the Transfer Matrix Method which calculates surface impedance, sound absorption coefficient and sound transmission loss in structures or materials. It is the first ever acoustics software to apply spherical wave propagation over impedance surfaces. This approach enables the calculation of non-common acoustical phenomena such as surface waves and ground waves.  Such waves have great impact on the simulation of outdoor sound propagation but also room acoustics, especially at grazing incidence.

With the coming next year of Olive Tree Lab – Building, the software applications for the calculation of building acoustics, sound transmission and radiation in buildings and structures, the OTL-Suite will provide a complete unique approach in solving most of  the problems encountered by professionals in their work.

3-Day Training course on OTL-Suite 26th - 28th October, Limassol-Cyprus - Monday, September 21, 2015

This 3-day course covers an overview of Olive Tree Lab 3.0, setting up a model and running calculations for outdoor (Terrain) and indoors (Room & Office). The course covers importing images, dxf/dwg, modelling in OTL, new database including the new Multilayered Structure Builder, running calculations, calculating Impulse Response, Auralization, 2D & 3D mapping,  Sound Distribution and Scattering Polar Plot, among many other topics. Case studies are presented and interpreted.
