Summary Predicting the acoustic outcome and acceptance of a concert performance hall by its users could be a difficult and onerous task even for an acoustician. This paper discusses a process of how previous research findings from expert authorities have been assembled into a method of evaluating acoustic hall performance. Several parameters of acoustic qualities and quantitative measures have been identified in the literature. These relate to Beranek’s acoustic variables of performance. Existing famous concert halls which have been previously evaluated and rated are now studies in terms of their results from a computer simulation. The research findings suggest that the use of a simulation program can be extremely accurate in the prediction of acoustic performance of new non-existing concert halls.
