SubjectFlanking
AbstractDesigners and builders are constantly faced with the challenge of building housing that meets sound insulation targets, and does so cost effectively. The NRC Institute for Research in Construction has been active for many years developing new techniques and approaches for controlling sound transmission and has presented these to Solplan readers from time to time. An article in 2003 reported progress on controlling flanking sound involving the floor assembly. Since then work has been expanded to include flanking involving sidewalls and ceilings in both row and apartment housing. That phase of the work has now been completed and therefore it is time to update readers.
