Project: Silent timber buildings for the European market

The aim of “Silent timber Build” is to develop calculation models for acoustics and vibrations in wooden constructions. Until today there is a lack of data and knowledge regarding this topic especially when it comes to low frequencies and very low frequencies. It is in this frequency region where the focus should be in order to make sure that the number of tenants annoyed by noise will be reduced to a level corresponding to any other building structure.
