Conference_programme: 14.3 - Acoustic Regulations / Enforcement and Classification for new /existing and retrofitted buildings

Lecture: An approach on how an acoustic classification scheme for dwellings can be adopted in Brazil

Author(s): Shieko Mariana, Lemos Elaine, Monteiro Carolina

The on-development standard for acoustic classification scheme for buildings - the future ISO 19488 - establishes quality classes that reflect distinct levels of acoustic comfort to be used internationally. The standard project is based on the proposal from European COST action TU 0901, which establishes harmonized criteria for several acoustic requirements. \nThe purpose of this paper is to provide inputs of how this classification scheme can be adopted in Brazil by analysing a large database of field measurements performed in typical Brazilian constructions. Results are presented for airborne and impact sound insulation between dwellings and airborne sound insulation for facades.
