Environmental Control & Technical Installations 1

This course starts with the definition of the environment (natural and man-made) and its components. Then, it focuses on the "Room Acoustics". Many related topics will be introduced such as: nature of acoustics, weighted pressure levels, sound analysis, comfort and noise indices, acoustic design and noise control In addition, the course addresses the main mechanical systems that are used in buildings to achieve vertical and horizontal circulation. Also, this course includes the hydraulic services that serve the user needs such as: water supply, sewerage, sewer and rainwater drainage, sanitary installations, firefighting, solid waste disposal.
