  1. 1. EVALUATION OF ACOUSTIC COMFORT IN APARTMENT BUILDINGS

    Författare :Nikolas Vardaxis; Teknisk akustik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acoustic comfort; field measurements; noise annoyance; subjective responses;

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Foam, Fire and Free Volume - Chemical and Physical Aspects of Porous Polymers

    Författare :Anna Andersson; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Poisson ratio; vibration damping; acoustic impedance; cell morphology; hyperbranched polymer; Polymer foams; free volume; positron annihilation; supercritical fluid.;

    Sammanfattning : Automotive seating has been under continous development since it was described for the first time in 1885. At that time one could read about a “padded leather bench seat sitting on springs mounted directly to the frame of a horse-less carriage”. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Over the past century, the automobile has become an integral part of modern industrializedsociety. Consumer demands, regulatory legislation, and the corporate need togenerate a profit, have been the most influential factors in driving forward the evolutionof the automobile. LÄS MER

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

    Författare :Nata Amiryarahmadi; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lightweight floors; Annoyance; Walking sound; Virtual design studio; Low frequency;

    Sammanfattning : 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.

  5. 5. Micro-Structure Modelling of Acoustics of Open Porous Material

    Författare :Eva Lundberg; Peter Göransson; Per Wennhage; Ulf Orrenius; Camille Perrot; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acoustics; porous material; flow resistivity; micro-structure; anisotropic; foam; strut; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Transportation is a large and growing part of the world’s energy consumption. This drives a need for reduced weight of rail vehicles, just as it does for road vehicles. In spite of weight reductions, the vehicle still has to provide the same level of acoustic comfort for the passengers. LÄS MER
