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.

When using more than one layer of plasterboard or a similar material, the stiffness (and hence the coincidence frequency) does not alter because the layers are fixed only at individual points. 5 mm plasterboard on both sides than with one layer of 25 mm plasterboard each side. Another factor affecting the sound insulation that be can be achieved in the end is the connection between the leaves. 6 mm 3 4 thick CW or MW metal sections, which achieve an even better spring effect and hence decoupling of the leaves.
