Default New to the site, acoustical engineer

Hi All,

I'm new the site and looking around at the moment, but I'm an acoustical engineer. A large part of my work with architects and MEP engineers is helping select pipe materials, routing, and vibration isolation of plumbing pipes and equipment. We mostly work on new commercial construction, primarily high-rise residential / hotels, schools, TV studios, etc. where plumbing noise isolation is critical.

Most likely I won't post too frequently.

Ah ... acoustical engineer ... that is EXACTLY why this forum is here. You don't know how true your last sentence is.

Well... the plumbing noise issues we've been called to help with typically require an understanding of vibration and plumbing system design / construction. Most contractors I've dealt with have been happy to help answer plumbing questions on how systems are built so we can get a better understanding of where the noise or vibration might be coming from so we can recommend how to stop it, and/or how to prevent it on future projects.

Maybe I just misinterpreted the forum, but if those types of questions wouldn't be appreciated here then I'm happy to stay off. Didn't intend to step on any toes.

Look near the upper right corner of the pic. You do not belong here due to the fact you are an acoustical engineer, which last I checked is not a plumber/drain specialist.


Dang, that banner does need to be MUCH bigger.

Can you silence the sound of this hollow core metal door as it slams shut behind you?

It's really too bad the hard liners have given you the thumbs down. As a plumber who does a lot of work where noise is a big issue, I appreciate what acoustical engineers bring to the table. More than once I've been gently schooled by one of your colleagues. For one particular job, I hired one as a consultant and he was worth every penny.

If we let one non plumber/drain specialist in, we might as well backtrack the people that have been denied and let them in too. That pesky Plumbing Professionals Only banner should just go away too.

I'm not saying I disagree, just that in some cases it's a shame.

I'm all for learning. Part of his trade is dealing with plumbing and the noise created. He's not asking how to rough in an addition. I'm all for knowledgable people that relates to our trade even if it's not the trade itself. Gonna guess there's not a forum for plumbing acoustics or I'd check it out.
