+ (02-26-2020) - Sound Advice for Acoustic Design

+EVENTS DETAILS

Time: Feb 26th, 2020 | 12:00 pm to 2:30 pm
Class Description: Unwanted sound impacts and affects all inhabitants of our created spaces. If not already in codes, controlling noise will quickly become a mandated concern for designers. Attesting to increasing the regulatory focus on noise, is a recent proliferation of standards, guidelines, and codes regarding acoustics. Very soon, many of these guidelines will no longer be mere suggestions. Most requirements can be addressed with a basic understanding on how sound travels and is reflected, blocked, absorbed or transmitted by materials and assemblies chosen when designing envelopes. Acoustic design is best addressed in an incremental fashion. This course approaches the subject in that fashion. Fundamentals are first covered, including basic principles regarding sound, how its energy moves through matter, how its path and intensity can be altered, and how success in the manipulation of sound is measured. Who Should Attend? Design-Build Professionals, Architects, Contractors, & Engineers
