Applied Acoustics

Sophie Luger
Architecture, Architectural Design 3
2021W, scientific seminar (SEW), 3.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S03943

Description

The course is designed for students with an interest in the acoustic impact and auditory perception of the built environment.

It provides knowledge on sound generation and sound propagation fundamentals and enables one to assess the auditory effect of architecture already at a preliminary design phase.  Additional topics include the influence of sound on humans as well as potential noise reduction strategies, with a focus on acoustic materials (sound absorption properties and relevant parameters) and their application.

The goal is to get to know the possibilities and challenges that are created by sound in our immediate surroundings and how to influence its acoustic properties within an early stage of design.
