Building Acoustics and Daylighting Buildings

FAST-CH001Acad. year: 2018/2019

Inside the building is necessary to provide acoustic and visual comfort. In terms of noise insulation is necessary to deal with both vertical and horizontal structures. Horizontal dividing structure, ie the ceiling to the floor, or even below, we shall, in addition air and impact sound insulation. The room acoustic enclosure is rated in terms of reverberation, in the field of urban acoustics belong determining attenuation in the outdoors. Aperture fillings in the peripheral and roof cladding must ensure adequate lighting interery daylight and the insolation.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

After completing the course student will receive a comprehensive knowledge in building, urban, architectural acoustics, design and assessment of daylighting buildings and buildings insolation. The acquired knowledge can be applied in practice in the design of construction exterior walls, partitions and ceilings due to acoustic page. Students will also be able to deal with the elimination of noise in a sheltered outdoor area protected structures and interior construction works in compliance with the requirements of the Government 272/2011 Coll.
After the site's lighting can assess the internal spaces of the building, whether it conforms to the standard requirement for insolation and value of daylight factor.
