Determination in the field of structure-borne sound source strength of building service equipment - A pilot study with inter-laboratory comparisons and a proposal for a Nordtest method (NT TR 616)

NT TR 616

  • A pilot project with an inter-laboratory comparison (round robin) has been performed, where a modified heavy duty washing machine has been circulated for tests among 7 laboratories. The main goal of this pilot project was to find out whether a simple substitution method could be applied to determine the structure-borne sound source strength of typical building service equipments.

Reproducibility of measurements with ISO 140 and calculations with EN 12354 (NT TR 603)

NT TR 603

  • Uncertainties of measurement and prediction of the sound insulation in a building is an important issue to the building industry, because they put increased expenses on all actors of the building process who have to keep safety margins to prescribed requirements. This report deals with estimates of both types of uncertainty and some recommendations on suitable safety margins are given.
