Synopsis:

The main goal of the course is to acquaint students with the current knowledge of building and room acoustics. The part related to room acoustics is focused on the description of sound field inside closed spaces with various dimensions, including coupled spaces, which are intended either for listening to speech or music or in which the noise reduction is required. The properties of sound fields are expressed by solved equations, statistical relationships, computer methods of finite or boundary elements and by raytracing method or by measurement methods based on impulse responses and IACC. In this part, the principles of construction of sound absorbers and diffusers will be explored, including their analytical description and measurement methods for different purposes of their use.

The part related to building acoustics is focused on theory of transmission of airborne and impact sound through building elements and in buildings. Airborne sound insulation will focus primarily on single and multilayered building elements and the influence of structural properties (e.g. dimensions, boundary conditions, mechanical coupling between layers etc.) on sound transmission. Impact sound insulation will focus on floating floors and floor coverings and their contribution to the reduction of transmission of impact sound through floors and slabs. This part of the course will also deal with flanking transmission between rooms in building and experimental methods in building acoustics.

Within facilitated discussions, specific solutions will be analyzed using progressive materials based on recommended journal literature.
