Sound Transmission Indoors- Study of Whole Houses-Low Frequency Sound Transmission

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Project 38's goal is to provide insight into how typical dwelling envelopes affect indoor sound levels due to non-sonic boom aircraft noise. Many existing aircraft noise guidelines are based primarily on outdoor sound levels. However, human perception is largely based on indoor response. This study will leverage existing technologies in sound transmission to model the combined sound isolation of dwelling envelopes. The model will be whole-housed focused; that is, the research will focus on composite dwelling envelopes (walls + windows + roof, etc).
