Soundproofing Solutions – Flanksound Project – Supplement
Sound propagates in air as a pressure wave. When this pressure wave reaches our ear, the signal and is translated through a complex series of organs into a nervous stimulus and finally becomes the feeling of sound we experience everyday.
Noise is related to a subjective judgment of a listening experience; it is commonly defined as an unwanted sound that disturbs the performance of our standard living activities.
Acoustic comfort can be achieved through the control of noise transmission; it is a key factor to guarantee a high quality living experience in our homes and offices. This is why it is important to care about acoustics from the early stage of the design to the final realisation of the work, so that a good acoustic design can translate into the best living experience.
