AbstractThis paper presents a procedure for calculating appropriate STC ratings for windows and other building envelope components to provide a required noise reduction. A reverse procedure to determine noise reduction by a given set of components, and their relative contributions to the transmitted noise, is also given. Both a worksheet method and an equivalent computer program are included.
