AbstractThis paper is the third of a series of papers that provide an overview of work conducted by NRC in the past years on flanking transmission. In the previous papers the measurement system and the new NRC-IRC Flanking Facility are described1,2. The ISO 10848 method for measuring flanking paths is time-consuming and not feasible for a facility of this complexity. This paper describes the methodology used in the Flanking Facility to systematically measure airborne sound transmission through the individual flanking paths for the 6 junctions of the specimen.
