Architectural Acoustics Illustrated Part VI: Noise Control: Impact Noise & Community Noise

Format: CE Course
CE Info: 1.50 HSW LU
Contact Info: Customer Service (

Impact noise transmitted directly to the building structure is particularly annoying to building occupants, and unless it is accounted for in the initial design, is difficult to correct. Excessive community noise is common, a source of great annoyance, and a danger to human health, ranking as the greatest single source of dissatisfaction related to where people live. This course addresses the best design methods to mitigate both impact and community noise. This course is part of a seven-part series that translates the quantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphic language of architecture. Each section can be taken as an individual course.
