THE URBAN HAAT PROJECT Light weight. graceful, flexible,durable,tensile fabric structures are an environmentally sensitive medium and an inexpensive way to create organic forms.being light-weight and flexible ,this fabric interacts better with natural forces than a rigid material. The daytime translucency and night time luminosity creates a magical aura of being outdoors while enjoying the comfort and secutity of indoors.

(Tensile structure)


PROJECT BRIEF

Understanding the properties of tensile structures and their varied forms and surfaces in order to generate a space for an Event or an Exhibition. Form - based project.

CONCEPT BRIEF

My Tensile roof is to encourage Fishing + giving people a Fishing Experience + making them femiliar about new fishing techniques and equipments

INSPIRED FORM

Inspired by the swirl (To move with a twisting or whirling motion) basically, a whirling or spinning motion, created in water while fishing.

STRUCTURES AND JOINERY PROJECT BRIEF

This exercise required us to create a 3 Feet by 4 Feet structure that critically explores the possible connections between wood members of varying material and properties.We are suppose to work in pairs. Each pair is to use the given material :MDF 8mm ,1 metal element ( rods ,pipes, sheets) ,Fastners


CONSTRAINTS

Minimum 3 joints ,sketches, primary material :MDF, Secondary connectors.

MATERIAL USED

MDF of thickness : 8 mm and size 4 by 6 feet ;2 metalrods and nut and bolts.

JOINTS USED

Rabbet joint , nut and bolt joint and wedge joint.

INDIA-SOUTH AFRICA PROJECT BRIEF

To design an installation a surface for projection of moving images for a film festival that reflected collaboration between India and South Africa


CONCEPT BRIEF

Since it was a collaborative project between India and South Africa a similar element was to be found .

PARENT FORM KUDU HORN

° Elegant spiral horns ° Used as signal horns to call scout camps.. ° KUDU KORN -is one of the traditional instrument ° in Africa

The kudu horn is the largest antelope in africa

CONCH SHELL

° ° °

Important ritual object in hinduism Sounded during worship at specific points The warriors of ancient india blew conch shells to announce battle where as the africans blew thw kudu Horn for the same


A Rough idea as to how the installation would look like

SOUND AND ACOUSTICS PROJECT BRIEF gasket

This project required us to soundproof a conference room using different materials and also based on the research and understanding about sound it required us to make informative panels for the college

SOUND Sound is a ‘mechanical wave’ resulting from back and forth vibration of the particles of the medium through which the sound wave is moving.

SOUNDPROOFING & ACOUSTIC TREATMENT

SOUND SYSTEMS A loudspeaker (or "speaker") is an electro acoustic transducer that produces sound in response to an electrical audio signal input. The different channels in a speakers are:

ELECTRODYNAMIC LOUDSPEAKERS : • Most commonly used today. • Uses electromagnetic coil and diaphragm to create sound .

ACOUSTIC TREATMENTS Is done to the room to hear better quality sound.

HOW CAN IT BE DONE? - By overcoming inverse square law problem

Electromagnet

•SUPER TWEETERS: designed with high frequency . Can produce well beyond kilo hertz and reproduce high pitched sounds with little distortion. •TWEETERS: 20kHz •MID-RANGE SPEAKERS: 500-3000Hz

turns electric signals of varying strength into movements

SOUND PROOFING

Is done to the isolate the sound producing in a room from the outside world or vis versa. This can be done by sealing the room and by absorption. The part of the absorbed sound is converted into heat energy, rather than being transmitted or reflected.

HOW CAN IT BE DONE? connected to the vinyl cone ( this is a diaphragm that vibrates along induction .)

- Porous absorbers, typically open cell rubber foams or melamine sponges, absorb noise by friction within the cell structure. But the performance is less impressive at low frequencies. The wall cavities is filled with mineral wool or adding layers of plasterboard to a partition wall.

the coil of the copper wire moves as the magnet energizes. the coil. uses

•WOOFERS : 40-1000Hz •SUBWOOFERS: deep sounds 20Hz – 200Hz or lower ( which is the lower end of the hearing spectrum.

Mechanical energy (Pressure wave) - Oscillation of matter and therefore tranfers energy through the medium. - This wave can be produced only in media which possess elasticity and inertia.

ENERGY IS PARALLEL TO THE MOTION. (LONGITUDINAL WAVES)

compression high air pressure

rarefaction low air pressure

Frequency: number of vibrations per unit time. unit- Hertz Human can detect ranges from 20- 20k Hz Frequency below 20 Hz = Infrasound above 20k Hz = Ultrasound When the sound is moving through a 2D or a 3D medium, it’s intensity is reduced. Energy (conserved) = intensity * time * area

THRESHOLD OF HEARINGHuman can hear minimum 1*10-12 W/m2

SPEED OF SOUND The speed of sound depends on the INERTIAL AND PLASTIC PROPERTIES of the MEDIUM. eg) Steel - rigid - atoms tightly bonded- if stretched prevents deformation - maintains shape - hight ELASTICITY.

(In the decible scale) Threshold of hearing (TOH) is marked as 0dB = 1*10-12 W/m2 It is in the scale of 10 Intensity is 10 times more. INTERFERENCE OF SOUND

BOUNDARY BEHAVIOUR There are 2 types of reflections:

Sound is created + amplified through it.

Similar medium

•FULL RANGE SPEAKERS: covers a whole range of frequencies with single drive.

To avoid DECONSTRUCTION in THEATERS caused by speakers and the reflected sound, sound absorbing walls and ceilings are used.

- By judicious use of reverberation

WHAT IS THE BEST MATERIAL FOR A SPEAKER BOX? MDF or Ply is normally used. Reason: Not because its cheaper than solid wood , but because the density of each wood is different, leading to each speaker sounding differently. And also solid wood compresses or expands depending upon the change in weather conditions.

Ear plugs captures the environment’s sound then creates another sound which is 1/2 cycle out of phase, creating decontruction of sound. This is called NOISE CANCELLATION

Different medium

- Resonant panels, Helmholtz resonators and other resonant absorbers work by damping a sound wave as they reflect it. Effective for low- medium frequencies. - By overcomming the bass loss problem

MORE THE SIMILAR MATERIALS MORE THE TRANSISSION OCCURS.

sound

Since air and the cement wall as media are different, sound would be reflected back. This reflected sound would create deconstruction in the auditorium.

Since air and the curtain / fiber glass / acoustic tile as media are similar,most of the sound would be absorbed while the rest would be reflected back.

Reflection of sound

3D ECHO

- By avoiding focusing of the sound.

- ROOM IN ROOM CONCEPT

The vibration passes directly through the brick, woodwork and other solid structural elements. When it meets with an element such as a wall, ceiling, floor or window, which acts as a sounding board, the vibration is amplified and heard in the second space. Hence a room in a room is created. This process is also acoustic de-coupling.

TYPES OF SURROUND SOUND (2D)

Room in room concept.

Treatment is done by putting glass wool, plaster board, keeping air gap.

When the reflected sound reaches the receiver after 0.1 second, it is perceived as another sound.

REVERBERATION

When a person stands 17m away from the relective surface, the reflected sound reaches him within 0.1sec. Since the human brain keeps a sound for upto 0.1 second, the reflected sound seems to be prolonged.

DIFFRACTION OF SOUND The change in direction of the sound through oppenings or around barriers is called diffraction of sound. It is noticible only if the wavelenght is bigger than the opening or the barrier.

-The reverberation would bring the liveliness and fullness in the auditorium, increased reverberation time on the clarity. (proper ventilation must be assured and gas heaters cannot be used inside de-coupled space.) -Curtains

REFRACTION OF SOUND Change in the direction of the sound when passed from one medium to another is called Refraction of sound.

-Honey shaped chambers. - Double window pane. -Install bookshelves and fill them with books -Choose a room with a low ceiling. -Egg cartons, sealing the gaps with neoprene gasket, etc.
