COURSE OVERVIEW

Communication is a key element to the success of virtually all spaces where people gather. Whether it is an office, a classroom, a performing arts center, or an arena, the success of the space depends on the users’ ability to clearly hear and see the event. Architectural Acoustics presentation will provide you with basic yet essential information to enhance the acoustical performance of the facilities you design.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Learn about basic acoustics fundamentals, such as the decibel (dB), frequency (Hz), and octave bands
  2. Learn about the benefits of good acoustics, as well as the negative impact poor acoustics has on occupants of a facility.
  3. Witness examples of three important acoustical parameters – reverberation, sound isolation, and ambient (background) noise.
  4. Learn different design techniques for attaining acoustical metrics such as reverberation time, sound transmission class (STC), and Noise Criteria (NC).
