Building Physics 2

FAST-AH007Acad. year: 2018/2019

In order to ensure protection against noise in buildings need to be addressed insulation both vertical and horizontal separation structures and cladding. The room acoustic enclosure is rated in terms of reverberation time, the urban acoustic attenuation rate in the outdoors. In addition to acoustic performance must be in the interior of the building and ensure visual comfort, ie. there must be adequate interior lighting with daylight and the insolation.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Student will be able to design partitions from the requirements for sound insulation. Acquire basic knowledge in the field of spatial and urban acoustics. Will be able to evaluate noise in the workplace, in protected indoor and outdoor structures. You will also be able to provide the required illumination interior with daylight and insolation residential buildings.
