AbstractThis paper reports results from continuing studies of sound transmission between adjacent units in wood-framed multi-dwelling buildings. First, the paper presents some recent extensions of our multi-year experimental study, which has assessed how common construction details affect structure-borne (flanking) transmission between adjacent rooms, for a broad range of wall and floor constructions. Previous reports have focused on the wall and floor surfaces connected at the wall/floor junction - especially the floor surface, which is often the dominant problem. This paper includes a number of other paths that may collectively become significant when more obvious paths are controlled.
