Quantification of footstep noise transmission in the interior of an apartment building
AbstractIn this paper an experimental approach was used to investigate the structure-borne noise transmission in an apartment building where the main noise source was heeled shoes. Several transmission paths were studied and their effect on the overall noise inside the rooms was determined by measurements of the sound pressures at two receiver locations. The principal transfer paths were highlighted and classified in terms of their importance. The total structure-borne was predicted from the incoherent addition of two types of heeled shoes by subtracting the residual noise from other paths. A comparison was also made between direct measurements and prediction.
