With the increasing urban densification, balconies are gaining in popularity as they improve the living quality in homes. Since graduating in 2019, Lucas has been working on the impact sound insulation of thermally insulated balconies. What sounds like a rather uninteresting topic is actually a wide field of different engineering tasks, including the development of test rigs, simulations, measurements both on the test rig and in buildings, and standardisation. Future work will also focus on the perception of people walking on balconies and access balconies, where poor impact sound insulation can be very annoying.
Institute of Acoustics is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
