AbstractIn an effort to generate design details for wood framed construction that meet the very stringent Korean Code requirements, solutions to reduce low frequency impact sound were developed. This paper presents these design details and the approach taken to develop them, which involved a parametric study of direct impact sound insulation followed by a flanking study. Results of the direct sound insulation study focus on the effects of topping and ceiling designs, whereas the flanking study focuses on the significance of flanking on the overall impact sound transmission between two rooms, one above the other, and on how a topping affects direct and flanking impact sound transmission differently.
