Synopsis:

The course deals with the physical theory of sound including physiological and sociological aspects of this phenomenon and the principles of designing buildings according to objective criteria of structural and spatial acoustics. The structural acoustics part deals with methods for assessing the airborne sound insulation between rooms and envelope structures of buildings exposed to noise from road and air traffic and industrial production, including construction activities, as well as methods for assessing the generation and propagation of impact sound. The part on room acoustics deals with methods of assessing and designing production areas and rooms for noise protection by room acoustics methods and the assessment and design of auditoria for listening quality. All topics include information on the current state of Czech legislation.

Requirements:

Knowledge of building acoustics at least in the range of courses taught in the Bachelor's degree.

Syllabus of lectures:

Theory of sound including physiological and sociological aspects.

Airborne sound insulation of building structures (single and double structures, flanking sound transmission).

Building envelope (noise from road and air traffic and from industrial production including construction activities).

Origin and propagation of impact sound.

Production areas and living rooms from the point of view of noise protection.

Auditoriums from the point of view of room acoustics.

Syllabus of tutorials:

Theory of sound including physiological and sociological aspects (calculations with sound pressure levels).

Airtightness of building structures (estimation of laboratory airborne sound insulation and flanking sound transmission).

Building envelope (sound propagation through the building envelope).

Generation and propagation of step sound (calculation of heavy floating floors).

Production areas and living quarters from the point of view of noise protection (calculation of the sound pressure level in the reverberant wave field).

Auditoriums in terms of spatial acoustics (design).

Study Objective:

To deepen the knowledge of building acoustics by studying the recommended literature, preferably focusing on the specific topic of the candidate's doctoral studies and his/her future dissertation.
