Keywords:Acoustic variables measurement, Fire resistance, Walls (structural partitions), Wooden buildings, Wooden floors, Airborne sound transmission, Apparent sound transmission loss
AbstractAn overview is given on selected results from a research project to study sound and fire resistance of wall/floor junctions intended for multi-family residential buildings. It is emphasized that lower apparent TL observed in the field is often due to flanking.
