Associate Professor Daniel Butko’s article focused on acoustic concrete research and prototype fabrication was recently published in the Technology | Architecture + Design Spring 2021 Issue 5:1.

The article, entitled “A Sound Approach to Concrete: Transforming Concrete Through Shape and Porosity for Acoustical Reflection, Diffusion, and Absorption,” summarizes research since 2017 focused on developing Acoustically Diffuse & Absorbent Lightweight Aerated Concrete (ADALAC) for implementation into multiuse spaces.

Daniel would like to thank everyone involved with making this research possible and the publication come to fruition including Gibbs College of Architecture administration, colleagues, and students, OU VPRP office, Coreslab Structures, TAD editors and publishers, and Zach Maggia for countless hours of experiments and problem solving.
