  4. 4. EVALUATION OF ACOUSTIC COMFORT IN APARTMENT BUILDINGS

    University dissertation from Div. Engineering Acoustics, LTH

    Author : Nikolas Vardaxis; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acoustic comfort; field measurements; noise annoyance; subjective responses;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns assessment of acoustic comfort in apartment buildings. A new approach is followed, beyond noise annoyance investigation, which was the typical path so far. The latter involved acoustic descriptors, which characterize the structural components, being associated to self-reported noise annoyance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Factors Governing Acoustical Comfort In Vehicle Compartments

    University dissertation from Div. Engineering Acoustics, LTH
