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 (which depend on the specific construction details). By combining an interactive interface with a calculation framework, a new internet-based tool presents predicted energy transmitted via all paths in an intuitive and user-friendly form that supports informed design decisions.
