Structural engineer and historic environment consultant chris pike explains the processes by which sound is transmitted in buildings and the most effective and sensitive ways to add or upgrade sound insulation in historic buildings in accordance with current building regulations. Two parameters are used to describe the sound insulation of a partition dw and rw dw represents the sound insulation between rooms on site since these figures describe the final site requirements dw levels are specified by clients and building regulations rw represents the lab tested sound insulation of an element making up a partition . Summary the book explains sound insulation in buildings at a level suitable for both graduate students and expert consultants theoretical models are set out for sound transmission in buildings with an emphasis on thick and heavy constructions. Soundproofing relates to the overall ability of a building element or building structure to reduce the sound transmission through it two types of sound insulation might be referred to airborne sound insulation and impact sound insulation room to room insulation how to avoid unwanted sounds from adjacent rooms read more one way sound . To erect buildings with good sound insulation architects and builders need to know the acoustic properties of various building materials and structures this publication containing acoustical test results on over 100 building constructions was prepared to meet their needs
