AbstractA three-year project at the National Research Council Canada to study flanking transmission in wood-framed construction under controlled conditions was recently completed [1,2]. The focus was horizontal and vertical flanking involving the wall/floor junction in multifamily buildings built to resist wind or seismic loads. This paper reports on the effect of joist orientation (relative to the wall/floor junction), junction blocking details, joist type (solid lumber vs. wood-I joists), and wall framing (double stud, single stud or single stud shear walls) for airborne excitation. The wall and floor specimens divide the test facility into four rooms (labeled A, B, C, and D in the figures). Flanking paths involving room surfaces other than those of the test specimens are negligible.
