The project represents a major investment in the Swedish building acoustics and collects a variety of actors both within universities and research institutes as in industries and consultancies. The work is divided into seven work packages (WP):
WP 1: Subjective experience of sound, vibration and springiness - method development and laboratory/field studies
WP 2: Physical models of structure borne sources - method development
WP 3: Calculation methods for components, systems and complete buildings - method development and simulation
WP 4: Existing subjective and objective data - inventory and analysis
WP 5: New measurements with a focus on low frequencies and the coupling between sound and vibration - method development, data collection and analysis
WP 6: Correlating data from subjective and objective assessments –overall analysis
WP 7: Requirements for sound insulation, vibrations and springiness and possible combined effects
We are actively involved in a number of these work packages, with a special responsibility for WP 5.
