Abstract

Apartment houses have been continuously constructed in Korea to solve overcrowding in large cities. The interlayer noise arising from these apartment houses has now become a critical social problem which requires an urgent solution. In recent years, studies applying numerical analysis techniques with respect to the structural type and floor plane have been carried out to effectively reduce the heavy weight impact noise, which is a cause for the interlayer noise. This study proposes analytical impact force models based on the actual measurement data regarding the heavy weight impact noise, which is mandatory input data for performing a numerical analysis. Additionally, the appropriateness of the proposed models has been verified through a comparative review with Korean standards. With the use of the proposed model, a numerical analysis has been conducted using a wall-type specimen, and a comparative analysis has been also performed with respect to the field measurement data. The applicability of the proposed model to the numerical analysis shows the possibility to resolve the interlayer noise problems numerically posing difficulties due to both the limited costs and time. Finally, it is expected that more information can be provided to resolve the interlayer noise problem based on the numerical analysis of various boundary conditions. View Full-Text
