Renzo Tonin

Senior Consultant

  • LinkedIn
  • Ph.D. (Mech Eng), B.Sc (Hons.), University of Adelaide

  • Fellow Engineers Australia

  • Fellow Australian Acoustical Society (FAAS)

  • Member Acoustical Society of America

  • NPER, RPEQ

  • Approved signatory for NATA accredited activities

Dr. Tonin's belief that high technology acoustics and dynamics engineering should form part of every day consulting has found acceptance with many clients. This is reflected in a strong company growth rate from private practice in November 1982 to one of the largest consulting companies specialising in acoustics engineering today.

His sponsored studies encompass such diverse activities as radio and TV studios, commercial buildings, ships, motor vehicles, trains, industrial complexes, power stations, product development, material handling plant, machines health monitoring, coal washeries, public buildings and auditoria.

His special interest is in the use of computer technology to solve problems in the fields of acoustics and dynamics.

He is a contributing author to the book "Environmental Modelling" which is a publication designed to bring together current expertise on modelling of the environment using computer based techniques.

His doctorial thesis addressed the use of laser 3D holography for the study of vibration. A distinguished international journal honoured his work in this field by presenting one of his papers as a featured article.

His sponsored studies include the following; Industrial noise, construction noise & vibration, occupational noise, structural vibration, acoustic research & development, architectural acoustics, building mechanical services and expert representation in legal cases.
