Nicht nur Konzertsäle oder das antike Amphitheater erheben Anspruch auf akustische Qualität, sondern jedes Gebäude, sogar jeder Raum besitzt eine akustische measurement, die je nach Funktion in ihren individuellen Anfo

One particular problem can be the transmission of impact sound in the horizontal direction when using hard floor coverings because the walls are normally erected on top of the hollow floor, leaving an uninterrupted void underneath. In order to reduce the horizontal sound propagation, various interruptions to the hollow floor construction below partitions have been tried out, especially for hard floor coverings. However, in practice the effect has frequently been found to be inadequate because the interruption is incomplete.

1). Sound emissions calculation In Germany the calculation of the sound emissions level, taking road traffic as the cause of the sound, is described in the Directive for Noise Abatement on Roads (RLS-90). e. g. SCHALL 03 for rail traffic, VDI 3770 for sports. Sound immissions calculation When assessing new building work, the sound propagation calculation is carried out with the help of a computer, taking into account defined calculation rules. The propagation of noise is particularly 42 The sound emissions are characterised by the source and hence the cause, the immissions consider the effects.

If no development plan is available, the building works are to be assessed according to their need for protection against noise. If the immissions limit values are exceeded, the Traffic Noise Abatement Measures Act (24th BImSchV) is one of the statutory instruments that regulates the nature and scope of the noise abatement measures necessary at the building (passive noise control measures). However, the effects of existing transport routes are not taken into account. The upshot of this could be that the facades and sound-insulating windows designed according to the 24th BImSchV are inadequate according to research into the effects of noise.
