Continued Education Library
In today’s competitive environment, it is important for professionals to keep developing their skills and knowledge. CDP or Continuing Professional Development courses can play a vital part in this, contributing to an individual’s personal growth and success.
At CDM Stravitec, we believe that sharing industry knowledge is crucial to our mission of making this world a quieter place. Proper understanding of the sound and vibration isolation properties of different systems, the way sound propagates and the many pitfalls that acoustic insulation brings are essential.
With that in mind, we have developed the CDM Stravitec Continued Education Library, an online learning resource for acoustical consultants, engineers, and contractors who want to explore how acoustics can positively impact wellbeing.
In this library, you find CPD-accredited courses and more. Register for a scheduled CPD course or request a specific webinar demonstration for your firm.
Note: once a week, on Friday evening, those registering for one or more of our CPD-accredited courses will be notified by e-mail.
Course 1: Designing & Testing Fitness and Gym Isolated Floating Floors
As current acoustic standards and testing equipment don’t allow for accurate in situ measurements, drop weight and in situ tests are recommended when designing acoustic floating floors for gym areas. It is important to identify the type of noise and its source, especially in gyms where many different types of noise are being generated.
Course 2: Sound insulation of replaceable jack-up floating floor systems
Replaceable acoustic floor systems are often perceived as performing less in terms of sound insulation (airborne noise) compared to more traditional floating floor systems. However, when properly designed, jack-up floating floors are a worthy alternative with excellent noise and vibration isolation properties.
Course 3: Lightweight Acoustical Floating Floors on CLT Slabs
This course presents the airborne sound reduction and impact noise isolation of lightweight floating floor systems and confirms that CLT-assemblies can provide satisfactory sound insulation. Results of lab measurements on different types of floor setups are shown: including floor solutions using discrete bearings with various thicknesses and/or different void depths and resilient mats and strips; and different floating floors such as plywood: particle and cementitious boards: with and without the use of constrained layer damping technique: as well as gypsum topping.
