Synopsis:

The main goal of the course is to acquaint students with calculation methods which are used for advanced predictions of acoustic properties of building elements, buildings and sound sources, usually during the project planning phase. Students will acquire enhanced theoretical knowledge of sound insulation in buildings, noise from service equipment and room acoustics, allowing them to understand problems related to building and room acoustics and to be used further in their Ph.D. thesis.

This course is freely related to the course „Experimental methods in building and room acoustics“, but it focuses on calculation prediction methods of acoustic properties of buildings. The course is divided into three areas: sound insulation in buildings, noise from building service equipment and room acoustics. Within each part, students will learn about one or two topics. For sound insulation in buildings it means calculations of airborne and impact sound insulation between rooms. Noise from service equipment is focused on calculations of sound pressure levels in rooms and room acoustics is devoted to the calculation of reverberation time. Basic principles of calculation methods are the content of lectures, while the seminars are focused on the application of acquired knowledge, using modern software, which allows the estimation of sound insulation between rooms based on the methods stated in technical standards EN ISO 12354, as well as the advanced software ODEON for room acoustics. For accurate determination of the input acoustical parameters of building elements, students will use professional software for calculations of laboratory airborne and impact sound insulation of walls and floors and sound absorption of sound absorbers.
