Prospects for a test method for rating floor toppings on joist floors
Keywords:Acoustic noise, Ceilings, Concrete slabs, Rating, Joist floors
AbstractA study on the current efforts to develop a test method for rating floor toppings on joist floors is carried out. An essential component of a new test procedure is a new rating that deals with low-frequency noise transmission. The results suggest that any improvement spectrum from a test method will not be applicable to all kinds of joist floors.
