Designing HVAC Systems to Control Noise and Vibration

Share This

Course Length: 6 hours

Building designers, owners and operators have become more aware of potential noise and vibration problems from HVAC systems. Fortunately, proper system design can avoid most problems. This seminar emphasizes the important design information in ASHRAE's Practical Guide to Noise and Vibration Control for HVAC Systems. Beginning with a fundamental discussion of acoustics, the seminar focuses on the proper design and selection of HVAC equipment. Special attention is given to fans and air distribution systems. Also discussed are noise/vibration problems associated with central plant equipment, piping systems, and outdoor equipment. Case studies will be presented to reinforce the course information.
