AbstractFor the lightweight wood frame constructions considered in this paper, the dominant flanking path is shown to be from the floor decking to the wall below regardless of whether the wall is load-bearing or not. By comparison, the wall -- wall path is shown to be of negligible importance. A theoretical model is developed to predict transmission through the floor/wall joint. Measured and predicted results are in good agreement over the frequency range where flanking transmission is important.
