SemesterSpring Semester 2021
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
ObjectiveHeat: Goal is that students acquire the basic knowledge of stationary heat transport and are able to apply this knowledge for the design and performance analysis of energy efficient building envelope components. Students make simple exercises to practice this design process.

Acoustics:
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.
