Residential timber framed buildings have in some cases received complaints from inhabitants due to structure-borne sound at low frequencies, even if the building meets the regulations with respect to impact sound quality. This paper describes FE-analyses to evaluate the test setups of a building assembly and to prepare for the full-scale experimental modal analysis planned. By modal analysis, the dynamic properties of a structure, such as eigen modes and damping characteristics, can be extracted.
The test assembly consists of prefabricated wall and floor/roof timber elements. Different assembly and joining methods as well as building element are used. The eigen modes and damping differs between the assemblies investigated which influence the dynamic response in the lower frequencies. The results are carefully evaluated and planned measurements are discussed.
