SemesterSpring Semester 2020
LecturersJ. Carmeliet, M. Ettlin
Periodicityyearly recurring course
Language of instructionGerman


AbstractHeat: Basics of stationary heat transport and application to the design building envelopes.

Acoustics:
Basics of noise protection and room acoustics
ObjectiveAcoustics:
The students acquire a basic knowledge in the following fields:
description of sound, the human ear, properties of sound waves, propagation of sound, legal and planning basics, airborne sound insulation, structure-borne sound insulation, room acoustics.
Students can make simple calculations to proof sound insulation and calculate the reverberation time of a room.
ContentACOUSTICS:
1. Basics:
description of sound, sound perception, properties of sound waves, propagation of sound.

2. architectural acoustics:
legal and planning basics, noise protection, airborne sound insulation, structure-borne sound insulation.

3. room acoustics:
Sound absorption, sound reflexion, reverberation, planning of room acoustics.
