AbstractIt is bad enough not being invited to the party upstairs; worse yet is having to endure the sound of stiletto-heeled shoes keeping time to up-tempo music. Something can be done, however, to reduce such annoying impact noise from above. That something entails the installation of either an impact-absorbing, i.e., resilient, layer on the floor such as a carpet, or a floating floor. Increasing the thickness of the concrete slab can also improve the impact insulation. It is a matter of impact insulation increasing with an increase in mass. That applies just as much to the gypsum board ceiling suspended resiliently from a concrete slab. Overall, the control of impact noise differs greatly from that of airborne noise.
