Abstract

This paper provides a terse overview of how experimental characterization of the direct and flanking sound transmission paths in wood-framed construction leads to a manageable set of path transmission terms to represent the effect of specific design tradeoffs. By combining the energy transmitted via all paths, estimates of the Apparent-IIC for typical constructions can be derived. Results are presented in a design g uide for many common constructions.
