  1. 1. Drum sound from floor coverings - objective and subjective assessment

    University dissertation from Engineering Acoustics, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Ann-Charlotte Johansson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik; hydraulik; Maskinteknik; vacuum technology; vibration and acoustic engineering; hydraulics; acoustic standard; Mechanical engineering; tapping machine; veneer flooring; parquet flooring; binaural recording; foot impact; loudness; sound quality; listening test; paired comparisons; walking sound; drum sound; building acoustics; psychoacoustics; laminate flooring;

    Abstract : Drum sound is the sound produced when an object, such as a foot, hits the flooring in the room in which the receiving ear is located. Drum sound has attracted interest in recent years, particularly due to an increased use of thin floating floor constructions, such as veneer or laminate flooring, which can produce loud and sharp walking sound.

  2. 2. A Virtual Design Studio for Low-Frequency Sound from Walking in Lightweight Buildings

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Nata Amiryarahmadi; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lightweight floors; Walking sound; Low frequency; Annoyance; Virtual design studio;

    Abstract : In recent years there has been a growing interest for building lightweight multistorey wooden residential buildings in countries like Sweden with large and renewable forests. While positive aspects of these buildings, such as sustainability, ease of construction and lightness, motivate building more in wood, poor acoustic performance is a risk which concerns the wooden-building industry.

    Abstract : Population growth and urbanization are projected by the United Nations to add 2,5 billionpeople to the world’s urban population by 2050. We need to construct buildings in anunprecedented scale to meet global housing demand. Sustainable development is critical. READ MORE

  4. 4. Activity avoidance, perceived walking difficulties, and use of mobility devices in people with Parkinson's disease

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Manzur Kader; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Activity avoidance; Assistive devices; Difficulty walking; Falls; Fear of falling; ICF; mSAFFE; Near falls; Patient outcome assessment; PROM; Psychometrics; Parkinson’s Disease; Reliability; Validity; Walk-12G; Walking aids; Wheelchairs; Wheeled-walker;

    Abstract : Background: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic progressive neurodegenerative disease that results in functional loss and disability. People with PD have an increased risk of falling, and most of their falls occur while walking. As yet, there is limited knowledge concerning activity avoidance due to perceived risk of falling in people with PD. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessing and modelling impact sound insulation of wooden joist constructions

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Wanqing Shi; [1995]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk akustik; Engineering Acoustics;

    Abstract : Impact sound insulation is one of the most important aspects when assessing sound insulation of floor constructions in buildings. For assessing the impact sound insulation of aconstruction, a standard tapping machine is used as a sound source. READ MORE
