AbstractThe focus of this project is flanking transmission in wood framed construction. This report is the integration of results from four successive projects where the focus and construction details were decided by a Steering Committee formed from technical representatives from each of the supporting partners. Partners included Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Forintek Canada Corporation, MarriottInternational, National Research Council Canada, Owens Corning, Trus Joist, and USG Corporation.Flanking transmission is sound transmission between two rooms by paths other than directly through the nominally separating wall or floor assembly. Flanking exists in all buildings and its importance in determining the apparent sound insulation (that perceived by the occupants) will be a function of the construction details of the walls, floors and their junctions.
