AbstractThe purpose of this report is to provide information on the airborne sound insulation of load-bearing gypsum board wall assemblies, most of which had shear-resistant elements. These were divided almost equally between wood-and steel-stud framing. These types of assemblies extend the range consideredin the earlier study of gypsum board walls, which was documented in IRC Internal Reports IR-693 and IR-761.
