In the last decade, rising demand for mass timber structures has led to rapid technological advancements within the construction industry. Design for acoustics in mass timber structures must consider airborne and impact sounds as well as direct and flanking sound transmission.
Timber construction differs from conventional structures and building materials in several aspects, all of which have an impact on the acoustic design approach and performance of the structure. Flanking sound transmission can significantly contribute to the overall acoustic performance of mass timber structures.
The webinar will help designers to achieve high levels of comfort and successful projects from an acoustic point of view.
The learning outcomes answered in this presentation:
- What is the difference between airborne sound and impact sound.
- How to improve the performance of a wall and of a floor?
- Why are resilient interlayers necessary?
- Why airtightness is important to guarantee the acoustic performance of the building?
- Which aspects must be considered for the acoustic design of timber buildings?
