The location of the assumed line in relation to the exterior walls and the fire wall shall be such that the exterior wall and opening protection meet the requirements set forth in Sections and Such protection is not required for exterior walls terminating at fire walls that form an angle equal to or greater than degrees ( rad). The walls constructed below the ground are subject to pressure from the earth in both directions and are treated as retaining walls. It is therefore indicated in most domestic builds of this type, that any cavity be filled with a weak concrete mix (to be specified, normally 8 ballast=1 cement) up to finished ground level and in all cases mm

Internal floors must also achieve minimum airborne sound insulation levels of Rw 40 dB. In Scotland, the equivalent guidance is given in Section 5: Noise of the Domestic Technical Handbook. This limits sound transmission between internal walls and floors forming rooms that are within dwellings or residential buildings, and which can be used for The timber or wooden panels of certain thicknesses have sound insulation properties.

The sound insulation properties are poor due to the small surface density and porous structure. For instance the weighted sound insulation loss of 2 mm steel panel equals that of 35 mm particleboard and is larger than that of 40 mm ://   In few years multi-storey timber constructions were erected e.g.

in Europe, Japan, New Zeeland and consequently many issues are grown. Over the last period many researchers have tried to handle with sound insulation and reduction topics but what they found is very difficult to understand at a first sight: timber structures are ://   Annex B: Procedures for sound insulation testing 75 B1 Introduction 75 B2 Field measurement of sound insulation of separating walls and floors for the purposes of Regulation 40 and Regulation 20(1) & (5) 75 B3 Laboratory measurements 76 B4 Information to be included in test reports 77 Annex C: Glossary 78 Annex D: References 80 D1 Standards 80   Orig.: FR EUROPEAN COMMISSION OFFICE FOR INFRASTRUCTURE AND LOGISTICS BRUSSELS Manual of standard building specifications Version of 12 December 2 days ago  Guidelines for the sound insulation and acoustic properties of walls between adjoining units in multi-residential buildings are set out in Building Code of Australia - Volume 1.
