The Uncoupling Principle

9:00 am - 10:00 am

This seminar will examine the Uncoupling Principle, which is now recognized in the Tile Council of America's 2001 Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation. Review the history behind the Uncoupling Principle and examine the evolution of tile setting techniques, along with the benefits and limitations of each stage of development. The individual functions that are inherent to an uncoupling system will be discussed and the major implications for tile and stone installations revealed. At the end of this program, the participant will be able to: 1) comprehend the basics of the uncoupling principle and its relationship to the tile and stone industry; 2) recognize new areas of installation that can be attained through the utilization of an uncoupling system; and 2) interpret and apply the new details and applications found in the current TCA Handbook.

Sound Control in Construction

10:15 am - 11:15 am

This course defines the importance of sound control in the building industry where proper design can help avoid Litigation & Remediation. We will discuss building code criteria including International Building Code (IBC-1207) and International Residential Code.We will Identify areas where sound control is necessary in wall & floor/ceiling assemblies. We will then offer an explanation of terminologies including: STC, IIC, NRC, Use Patterns and Flanking Sound. The mechanisms of sound transmission and its attenuation will be discussed including: Mass, Double Leaf Construction, Field Damped Mass, Decoupling, Unbalancing, Coincidence Effect and Sound Masking.
