 Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi
 EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES and LEARNING OUTCOMES EXPECTED The course aims to provide the base knowledge and tools for the analysis of the generation, propagation, reception and perception of sound in various human activities. In this course, an introduction to the study in acoustics will be conferred and, in particular, a full understanding on definitions and physical concept of various involved acoustical features will be emphasized. Physical modelling and mathematical formulation for analysing the sound will be also covered together with their applications to architecture (i.e. buildings noise protection and indoor sound quality).   A) LESSONS PROGRAM 1.

Architectural acoustics 8.1 Interior space acoustics 8.2 Sound quality index   B) APPLICATIONS The applications are based on assigned practical problems which will be solved with the aid of preformed Excel spreadsheets. Each student will complete them to solve the assigned problems in the appropriate way. Before tutors explain the topics and give a tutorial to the specific problem solution.

 Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione
 Final written and oral examination with comprehensive evaluation of the report on what developed during the applications. The report must be delivered within the first examination session immediately after the course ends.
