Accreditation : This webinar is AIA approved.

Description:

In this presentation, IES Toronto offers an overview of how the behavior of sound in architectural spaces can affect us as human beings, and we look into the principals of sound absorption and strategies used to mitigate excessive noise. Presenters scrutinize the systems and units being used to evaluate sound absorption, and we examine the relevance of the NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) rating. Lastly, they put into question some of the ways acoustic luminaires are being tested and address the challenges of comparing luminaires in the absence of regulatory requirements.

Learning objectives

  1. Achieve an understanding of how sound absorption is determined by a number of factors in an enclosed environment.
  2. Examine the system being offered to measure sound and what to look for or be wary of in sound calculations.
  3. Understand the challenges that come with testing and comparing two luminaires.
  4. Looking into the benefits of sound mitigation to improve human performance.
