  • principles of noise control in relation to airborne and impact sound insulation
  • useful tricks of the trade, including many counterintuitive solutions


09:00     Registration (including Tea and Coffee)

09:30     Basic Acoustics

Including physics of sound; noise weightings; measurement parameters

10:30     Tea/coffee break

10:45     Acoustic Criteria: where they come from and what they mean

Including internal and external noise limits, sound insulation of floors and partitions, sound absorption and room acoustics (including reverberation times) and vibration isolation

12:30     BUFFET LUNCH

13:30     Practical Demonstration Controlling Noise

Including the effects of sound insulation, absorption, acoustic damping and vibration isolation.  We will provide a sound level meter so you can actually measure the noise reduction
