Event Format: Webinar – Microsoft Teams

Hosting Organization: APEGS – A Member-Led Webinar Series Presentation

Course Summary: Learn all about the basics of sound, including some of the common terminology used by acoustical consultants:

  1. What is sound; when is it good and when is it bad?
  2. Why do we need to consider the frequency characteristics such as octave bands?
  3. What is the difference between sound pressure and sound power and why is it important?
  4. How does sound travel in buildings and how do we stop it?

Presenter: Ian Bonsma, PEng, INCE, has more than 18 years of experience in noise, vibration and acoustics engineering consulting. Ian’s responsibilities cover a wide variety of projects including architectural acoustical design of buildings (acoustical privacy, speech intelligibility), environmental noise, ground-borne vibration and structural vibration assessments. Recent work has focused on the analysis and design of noise and vibration control for building services as well as architectural acoustic design for commercial and institutional spaces that include acoustic optimization, speech intelligibility and privacy solutions. Ian is familiar with the acoustical implications associated with LEED and WELL building design and has considerable experience in using measurement techniques to identify and develop controls for troublesome noise and vibration problems.

There is no cost to attend.
