WebReach: Basic Room Acoustics and Sound Control Using Metal Panels

When:  Oct 2, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)

This course explains the history and science of acoustics, and how sound travels and reacts in certain environments. Measurement of noise and sound control options are also explored.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define sound and its physical properties, and identify how sound travels and interacts through a typical space.
  • Examine the history of architectural acoustics, and utilize Wallace Sabine’s formula to convert Sabins in order to meet a specific area’s need for acoustical sound control
  • Understand Noise Reduction Coefficients (NRC), Ceiling Attenuation Class (CAC), Sound Transmission Class (STC), and how each helps in acoustical sound control
  • Demonstrate placement and alternative spaces to provide acoustical treatment within a given space
