Preserving Natural Resources Through Creative Engineering

Preserving Natural Resources Through Creative Engineering

It is important to be able to determine how to utilize, distinguish and identify the right acoustic products for your project. This course will assist in your understanding and enable you with those skills. We'll look at the product development process of diverting and recycling tires from landfills. After describing this sustainable reusable practice we'll discuss performance benefits of acoustic underlay products. To maximize project relevance, we will finish the course with small group discussions related to your current or future projects.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Differentiate criteria for selecting acoustic rated products for use in current and future projects
  2. Describe at least 3 building performance benefits of using recycled tire products (acoustic underlay products)
  3. Summarize the value from diverting and recycling tires form landfills
  4. Identify, evaluate, and describe how an acoustic rated underlay can be utilized on a project you are involved with - current or future
