Abstract

The latest Swiss standard SIA181 (6-2006 edition [1]) introduces a new methodology regarding the tests to be performed in new constructions for assessing noise induced by the manipulation of service equipment in bathrooms and kitchens. However, this method has been developed especially for massive constructions. In this study, we are investigating the relevance of such method for timber frame building, with typical structures including boxes, frames, massive floors, retrofitting solutions. Decoupling performances are particularly important in lightweight constructions, and the pendulous hammer method is actually aiming at evaluating the decoupling of service equipments. The goals for this work are to determine the advantages and the... (More)

The latest Swiss standard SIA181 (6-2006 edition [1]) introduces a new methodology regarding the tests to be performed in new constructions for assessing noise induced by the manipulation of service equipment in bathrooms and kitchens. However, this method has been developed especially for massive constructions. In this study, we are investigating the relevance of such method for timber frame building, with typical structures including boxes, frames, massive floors, retrofitting solutions. Decoupling performances are particularly important in lightweight constructions, and the pendulous hammer method is actually aiming at evaluating the decoupling of service equipments. The goals for this work are to determine the advantages and the limitations of this method for theses specific cases. For example, airborne contribution can become critical and deserves a specific control. This project should also identify the main propagation paths for equipment noise. A series of in-situ measurements has been performed for various building constructions and service equipments. Some additional laboratories investigations have been conducted to optimize the decoupling of service equipments to fulfill the Swiss SIA standard requirements.
