Abstract [en]

There is little data available of low frequency impact sound response of light weight woodenbuildings. The ISO 140-7, 717-2 standards normally used of impact sound is limited down to 50Hz. The response in low frequency area is of interest for human comfort. In the present work lowfrequencyimpact sound measurements were carried out in two modern office buildings withlightweight timber frame. The purpose was to assess the levels of impact sound transmissionbelow 50 Hz in these construction types. The low frequency impact sound levels are compared tothe higher. Both the tapping machine and the impact ball are used for excitation. It is seen that thepresent constructions have their highest levels below or close to 50 Hz when excited by the impactball. From the office rooms sharing joist floor with corridor there is seen increased levels of lowfrequency impact sound. Up to 10-15 dB higher impact sound was detected compared to roomwith joist floor separated from corridor.
