CPD Material (1)

Acoustic of Inner Spaces
This CPD explores how improving the acoustic properties of buildings and spaces has been a concern from the classical period to the modern day. It looks at modern building materials, how they contribute to the acoustic environment, the effect they have on acoustic quality and how this can be improved with the use of sound absorbent systems. The CPD describes the various sound absorbent systems, how they function and perform and how this performance can be measured. It also explores reverberation time, the Sabine Formula and the optimal reverberation time for different types of settings. A short case study will demonstrate how the addition of sound absorbent products can modify the settings acoustic values to those of its function. This seminar will help you to understand the following topics:
- The history of acoustics
- The transmission of sound
- The reverberation effect and the coefficient of absorption
- How the acoustic performance of acoustic materials is shown in product literature
- How sound absorbent systems reduce reverberation
- The optimal reverberation time and acoustic well-being of various settings and spaces
- How to calculate the required amount of acoustic material to improve reverberation time
