The Swedish research program AkuLite deals with various aspects regarding sound and vibration within lightweight buildings. As the popularity of lightweight block of flats increases it has been noticed that standardised (ISO) measurements, like airborne and impact sound insulation, tend to show different correlation with subjective experiences compared with concrete buildings. It is therefore of importance to either develop existing evaluation methods or to find new measurement parameters for better correspondence. In the project, series of sound and vibration measurements are carried out in various types of buildings. The measurements include extended frequency range and various sources as well as increased number of extracted parameters compared to existing standards. In parallel, questionnaires are distributed to the tenants, in the same buildings, where they give answer to questions regarding the experienced sound annoyance in their flat. Statistical analysis of the correlation between the objective measurement parameters and the subjective opinions from the tenants will be carried out.
