Demystifying Acoustics of Floor/Ceiling Assemblies

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

This presentation defines building code requirements and outlines acoustic principles. In addition, we will discuss efficient means of acoustic insulation using multiple floor/ceiling assemblies for Concrete, Steel, light wood-frame and mass timber buildings. You will also be able to hear different sound/acoustic ratings. This presentation will benefit building and design professionals such as architects, designers, acoustic engineers, builders/developers and general contractors.

10:30 AM

Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Sound control is a critical element to a building’s design. How an occupant will use the space must be understood in order to deliver a healthy and functional environment free of noise. Is speech privacy important? Is this a learning environment? Does the office open to a manufacturing floor? We all think of the walls, ceiling, and floor when discussing sound attenuation. But we must not overlook the importance of an acoustic-door assembly. Without the proper acoustic door, the sound-control goals in an acoustic plan may not be met. This course will review healthy sound levels and how to test and identify target STC ratings. We’ll discuss the elements of the acoustic-door assembly and how the assembly addresses fire-ratings and ADA compliance, contributes to LEED certification and green building, and provides security for classified files and electronic data.

Architectural Sound Separation

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This course will provide an introduction into the terminology, methods, materials and procedures used in architectural sound separation and isolation including typical assembly constructions and methods for reducing airborne noise and structural/vibration noise.

3D ACOUSTICS: The critical component to a successful design 1.5

01:10 PM - 02:40 PM

This course discusses the difference between NRC and STC as well as absorption, diffusion, and reflection and how it relates to echo, reverberation and speech intelligibility in architectural spaces and the importance of using the 3D design concept to maximize the acoustical performance of their room.
