Acoustically Enhanced Gypsum Board Designed for High STC Wall Assemblies
In this course, we explore sound transmission and acoustical requirements in buildings. Codes, standards, and design considerations, are thoroughly reviewed. Acoustically enhanced gypsum board assemblies are evaluated as a solution for improving acoustics in multiple indoor environments.
- Review key acoustical concepts & terminology: Sound Transmission Class (STC), Airborne Sound, Decibels (dB)
- Discuss current and proposed code requirements for STC ratings
- Describe existing and innovative sound reducing solutions in terms of efficiency and practicality
- Discuss the elements that affect STC ratings and what measures can be taken to improve STC ratings in wall assemblies
