Abstract: In the last 10 years in Turkey the number of a place of worship of the followers of the religion of Islam (mosque) has increased. Mosque, as a multi-functional place designed to be used technically for speech and music performances, is an active research area for experts of acoustics. In this study, a section of a comprehensive study focused on speech intelligibility in mosques is presented. The aim is to determine Turkish mosque types which are commonly built since the year of 2000 and to evaluate of its acoustical properties. Mosques built since the year of 2000 in a city which has the average population of the Turkish urban areas, are selected to be analyzed for determining the specification of the sample mosque models' physical characteristics. Method used in this study is; collection of the determined mosques' properties; comparative analyze of the collected data; synthesizing the design of the sample mosque and obtaining the room acoustic parameters by using simulation techniques. Finally, acoustical parameters of sample mosque are compared with the acoustical parameters of mosques suggested in the literature. Also, by this research the base model of the contemporary Turkish mosque is provided using for future studies on mosque acoustics. © 2019 Proceedings of the International Congress on Acoustics.
