Theoretical and experimental evaluation of the characteristics sound reduction of building elements

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Theoretical and experimental study of systems with high capacity to reduce sound transmission for use in construction or in industry.

The goals to be achieved are as follows:

1) theoretical analysis and study of models for sound insulation through the physical characteristics of the materials and the interaction of the individual elements in complex systems;

2) hypothesis of applications to structures for the reduction and control of noise (building elements, coating surfaces, components, etc.);

3) analysis of prototypes in laboratory and in field through the measurement of the sound reduction and other parameters that can be determined by standardized methods;

4) validation of acoustic insulation systems in field and response analysis using subjective listening tests.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
