Synopsis:

The basic knowledge from architectural acoustics and daylight in architecture is given to students within this course. Students participating in this course will be able to design and evaluate buildings considering daylight and acoustic performance.

Requirements:

-

Syllabus of lectures:

Fundamentals of acoustics, basic definitions and quantities (sound as a physical phenomenon, spectral analysis, levels and decibels, weighing of sound, time factor and equivalent levels, sound sources, sound fields).Indoor and outdoor sound propagation (attenuation, absorption, reflection and geometrical spreading of sound). Noise and vibration control engineering (principles of noise and vibration control, elastic mounting of vibration sources, enclosures, barriers, room sound absorption). Introduction to room acoustics and sound insulation in buildings (sound reduction index of single and double leaf partitions, impact sound insulation, revereberation time).

Daylight in architecture (the Sun as a source of daylight, basic photometric quantities and calculation principles, transmission of daylight through windows). Insolation of buildings (fundamentals of spherical astronomy, sun paths diagrams, sun control).

Syllabus of tutorials:

Calculation with sound pressure levels

Outdoor sound propagation

Indoor sound propagation

Airborne and impact sound insulation

Seminar paper

Assessment of daylight and insolation of buildings

Study Objective:

The aim of the course is to introduce students to selected parts of building acoustics and day lighting of buildings that they may encounter in practice.
