The Vancouver Chapter is holding their December lunch meeting on Thursday, December 6, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 180 West Georgia Street. Brizi Coetzer, PEng, of RWDI AIR Inc. will be presenting on acoustic performance of windows.
Coetzer will provide an overview of the fundamentals of acoustics as they apply to the propagation of sound through fenestration assemblies. The various parameters affecting the acoustic performance of windows will be detailed with reference to single number ratings such as sound transmission class (STC) and outdoor indoor transmission class (OITC), the significance of mass, thickness, and airspaces, as well as the composite acoustic performance of the exterior wall and window combined.
