AbstractThis article reports the results of a series of measurements of the sound transmission loss of exterior wood-stud walls. The tested walls were representative of contemporary constructions used in climates where significant thermal insulation is required. The measurements included important low-frequency bands to make it possible to correctly characterize the overall effectiveness of the walls when exposed to typical outdoor sounds. The results illustrate the influence of key parameters of the constructions on measured sound transmission loss values.
