Discussion 9.1: Subjective Evaluation of Isolation
The degree of sound isolation of all materials is very frequency dependent. Spend some time listening to various sounds coming into your home and/or office, and note the character of the sound. Make at least three different observations, and take notes.
Examples might include:
· the sound of a car passing by, observed through a closed window.
· the sound of voices or music coming through a wall from an adjacent apartment or office.
Discussion 9.2: Standard Testing Conditions
Transmission loss must be measured in a standardized, controlled laboratory setup. Discuss why this might be so. What variables might be introduced that would affect the results if TL were measured in other environments?
