The Probability Density Functions and The Uncertainty of the EN12354 Prediction Method (2008)
The probability density functions (PDFs) of each of the terms described in the prediction method of EN12354-1 and ISO10848-1 were examined in this study using experimental data and Monte Carlo simulations. The results of this study will provide a necessary insight for the calculation of the uncertainty of the apparent sound reduction index. A knowledge of the PDFs is particularly needed if the prediction method is to be applied to lightweight building constructions which may exhibit larger variances in experimental measurements than heavy, monolithic constructions. Based on the results of this study, it is expected that the uncertainty of the logarithmic terms of the prediction method may be calculated using the guidelines of the ISO Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement. However, further analysis is needed to clarify the PDFs of measurements made in a reverberant room before definitive conclusions about the use of the GUM method can be made.

Reciprocity and the Prediction of the Apparent Sound Reduction Index for Lightweight Structures According to EN12354 Mahn, J.; Pearse, J. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2008)In the derivation of the equation for the flanking sound reduction index for EN12354-1, reciprocity was used to remove the radiation efficiencies of the elements from the calculations. The exclusion of the radiation efficiencies ...
Investigation of the Separation of the Resonant Sound Reduction Index from Measured Data for use in EN 12354-1 Mahn, J.; Pearse, J. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2007)The application of EN 12354-1 to lightweight construction materials requires that the resonant component of the sound reduction index be separated from the reduction index measured according to ISO 140-3 or ISO 15186-1 ...
Experimental Study on Orthogonal Joints in Cross-Laminated Timber with Self-Tapping Screws installed with Mixed Angles Brown J; Li M; Tannert T; Moroder D (2020)Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is increasingly being used in lateral load resisting systems of multi-storey buildings. Conventional in-plane CLT shear walls can be transformed into CLT core-wall structures with enhanced ...
