Sound Transmission Loss Measurements Through 190 mm and 140 mm Blocks With Added Drywall and Through Cavity Block Walls (1990)
The economical control of noise through party and exterior walls is an important consideration in the construction of both residential and commercial buildings. This Research Highlight reviews a program that investigated the factors influencing the sound attenuation capabilities of various types of block wall assemblies. It concluded that to achieve optimal sound resistance, designers should use an appropriate combination of mass, air space and absorptive materials in their wall assemblies.
