Meetings between AIA and AiCARR

The “Meetings between AIA and AiCARR” arise from the collaboration between the Acoustical Society of Italy and the Italian Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Association.
This is a cycle of seminars in webinar mode and of a popular nature, aimed at a wide audience of professionals, which foresee the release of CFPs.
The program includes 4 events (two in spring and two in autumn) which will be held on Fridays from 1:00 am to 3:30 pm.
Two senior moderators and 4 speakers, generally young professionals or researchers, experts in acoustics and in energy and plant engineering issues, will discuss from time to time on the different topics, all of an interdisciplinary nature.
It will start with the first webinar (May 14) which will deal with Big data and applications in the management of acoustic and energy data. The second webinar (11 June) will deal with the energy and acoustic requalification of the contemporary building heritage. During the third webinar (24 September) the noise of energy plants will be discussed, with particular regard to cogeneration and refrigeration plants. The webinar on the aspects of global comfort (acoustic, thermohygrometric, visual) in the internal and external environment closes the cycle (October 15).

Thanks to the growing adoption and implementation of information and communication technologies (ICT) and monitoring infrastructures, a large amount of data from different acquisition sources relating to energy performance and quality conditions of both internal and external environment they are becoming more and more available and accessible.
Consequently, the civil and acoustic sector in the last decade has also proved to be a field of significant interest for the application of big data analytics techniques in order to generate added value from the massive and detailed collection of data. In this context, the marked heterogeneity, complexity and temporal dependence of the acquired data make the application of methods related to artificial intelligence a promising opportunity for knowledge extraction aimed at improving energy management processes and the quality of the built environment. This webinar will discuss some of the main solutions and perspectives offered by big data and artificial intelligence in the energy and acoustic fields.
In the energy field, we will discuss applications related to the forecasting of energy demand and the process of automatic detection and diagnostics of energy anomalies or system component failures, as tools to improve the energy performance of buildings through optimal management in operation. In the acoustic field, applications related to the creation of a large-scale dynamic acoustic mapping system will be discussed to improve and simplify the monitoring and environmental management of the territory in urban areas. This is done through a limited number of permanent acoustic monitoring sensors, distributed throughout the territory, each representative of a group of roads with similar traffic characteristics. The acoustic data collected in this way is used to update the dynamic acoustic map in real time, using a dedicated algorithm.

Chiara Confalonieri, Graduated in 2012 with a scientific high school diploma, I attended the three-year degree course in Sciences and Technologies for the Environment, graduating in 2016. In 2019 I obtained the master’s degree in science and technology for the environment and the territory, with a thesis entitled “Verification of the DYNAMAP system (DYNamic Acoustic MAPping) in the pilot area of ​​Rome”, thus addressing me definitively in the field of acoustics. Following the obtaining of an external collaboration and a scholarship with the research group in environmental acoustics of the Department of Environmental and Earth Sciences of the Bicocca University, which led to the publication of several articles in a journal, I obtained a PhD scholarship in summer 2020 with the project “Evaluation of the quality of an environment through the analysis and definition of the most suitable acoustic and bioacoustic indicators characterizing the local soundscape”, officially starting the path in November 2020.

The redevelopment of contemporary buildings typically involves aspects related to energy efficiency and acoustic comfort in indoor environments. When intervening on the envelope or on the internal partitions of a building for the purpose of improving energy and acoustic requirements, one may run into problems concerning urban planning, typological, dimensional or structural constraints that can sometimes make it difficult to carry out the interventions necessary to guarantee compliance with legal limits or good executive practices. To all this is added the economic feasibility of the intervention, to be evaluated along the life cycle of the building. The national regulatory and legislative framework, relating to interventions to improve energy and acoustic requirements, is relatively complex and articulated and often interventions concern only one of the two aspects: either acoustic or energy. On the other hand, conscious design can, often with minimal increases in cost and executive complexity, lead to the simultaneous satisfaction of energy and acoustic improvement requirements. The seminar will briefly illustrate the most recent developments in the national regulatory and legislative framework and executive techniques and space will be given to questions from the participants.

The EU objectives of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting energy efficiency on the one hand and the need to live and work in comfortable environments on the other have led in recent years to a growing spread of cogeneration and refrigeration and air conditioning systems, which in anthropized contexts are the cause of significant noise disturbance. In this webinar plant engineers and technicians competent in acoustics will discuss, touching both the design and regulatory aspects, on the theme of noise from energy systems, also providing methodological indications on its measurement and evaluation.

The environmental quality of buildings and their neighboring external spaces is a multidisciplinary theme that covers thermo-hygrometric, acoustic, visual and air quality aspects. These aspects are very strongly correlated with each other even with respect to the actions that the user takes to increase his level of comfort. More and more attention is paid to monitoring environmental quality, both objective and subjective, whose data can be related to the energy management of the building and the behavioral aspects of the occupants. The webinar will present the results of some research projects on global comfort in school and office environments and in the external environment. The evaluation indices of the various aspects of environmental quality will be presented, also in the light of the most recent international protocols, which will be related to the subjective evaluations expressed by the occupants and their behavior in reaction to a non-optimal environmental stimulus.
