Understanding acoustics is important in many areas of building services and this course aims to provide an introduction to the topic of acoustics.
The course will explain common noise sources, paths of noise transmission and how noise can be controlled. There will be explanation of acoustic terminology such as sound power levels, sound pressure levels, the decibel unit, frequency, A-Weighting, noise rating (NR) curves, sound transmission, attenuation, and sound insulation. Vibration will also be explained in the course, as well as the impact of noise and vibration on occupants of buildings.
A description of relevant acoustic test standards and legislation will be given. Worked examples and exercises will be used during the course to assist participants with learning and implementing an understanding of acoustics.
