AbstractThere has long been dissatisfaction with the standard tapping machine test. It provides, at best, a mediocre prediction of user satisfaction when used to rate wood-joist and similar lightweight constructions. Walkers on such floors generate relatively high levels of sound at low frequencies not considered by the current rating systems. The work described here studied the properties of a tire impact machine that was being considered as a possible new standardized impactor for use in North America. Impact sound levels generated by a small automobile tire and wheel were compared with levels from other devices.
