Gives an overview of current developments into acoustic control within buildings and their impact on current ventilation practices. Includes an examination of current design guidance and advances in acoustic measurement and calculation, as well as research into noise generation and control in buildings, with the emphasis on both noise transfer by the building itself (structural elements, design or occupants), as well as HVAC generated noise (including noise transfer from the plant room, ducts, terminal devices, etc). The report concludes with an examination of the interaction of noise related problems with sick building syndrome and its impact on the quality of the indoor environment.
