Sound insulation is an important aspect of building performance.
This book is a comprehensive guide to sound and vibration theory
and its application to the measurement and prediction of sound
insulation in buildings. It enables the reader to tackle a wide
range of issues relating to sound insulation during the design and
construction stages of a building, and to solve problems in
existing buildings. The book has been written for engineers,
consultants, building designers, students in acoustics, researchers
and those involved in the manufacture and design of building
products. Key aspects are that it: * Explains the fundamental
theory using examples that show its direct application to buildings
* Guides the reader through the links between measurement and
theory * Explains concepts that are important for the application,
interpretation and understanding of guidance documents, test
reports, product data sheets, published papers, regulations and
Standards * Makes direct reference to ISO and EN Standards on sound
insulation * Contains a large number of illustrations showing
measurements, predictions and example calculations for quick
reference Carl Hopkins previously worked on building acoustics and
environmental noise at the Building Research Establishment. During
this time he was involved with sound insulation in research,
consultancy, standardization, and building regulations as well as
being an advisor on acoustics to government departments. He is
currently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool within
the Acoustics Research Unit of the School of Architecture.
