Schallschutz und Akustik gehören vielleicht nicht zu den primären Parametern, die den Entwurf eines Gebäudes normalerweise beeinflussen. Doch spätestens wenn guy den Vortragenden im Seminarraum nicht versteht, der Geräuschpegel im Großraumbüro unerträgliche Ausmaße annimmt oder das Rumoren des Nachbars einem den Schlaf raubt, wird klar, wie wesentlich die Raumakustik zum alltäglichen Wohlbefinden beiträgt. Nicht nur Konzertsäle oder das antike Amphitheater erheben Anspruch auf akustische Qualität, sondern jedes Gebäude, sogar jeder Raum besitzt eine akustische size, die je nach Funktion in ihren individuellen Anfo

Low-noise asphalt – a special openpore mix – reduces the noise level permanently by at least 5 dB(A) compared to normal asphalt, which corresponds to a reduction in traffic amounting to almost 70%. This achieves a noise reduction over a wide area because a lower noise exposure is to be expected even in the higher storeys of apartment blocks or buildings further away from the road. Following justified reservations with regard to the laying and upkeep of such open-pore asphalt mixes, this technology underwent further development and is now being used more and more, also in urban areas.

Regulations for road and rail traffic The provisions of the Traffic Noise Control Act (16th BImSchV) apply when implementing the Immissions Control Act in conjunction with the building of new or major alterations to existing public road or rail (including tram) routes. When building or carrying out major changes, it should be ensured that the assessment level does not exceed the corresponding immissions limit value (Tab. T2). The nature of the building works and the areas are determined by the stipulations of the development plans.

To achieve this, the cavity must be at least 30 mm wide and filled with an insulating material of low stiffness. From the acoustics viewpoint, rigid polystyrene foam is unsuitable as cavity insulation. Good results can also be achieved by using heavyweight wall linings (see “Small rooms for music”, p. 84). 125 250 500 1000 2000 4000 Frequency f /Hz Lightweight plasterboard wall with two layers of plasterboard, 150 mm: Rw = 53 dB Lightweight plasterboard wall with one layer of plasterboard, 75 mm: Rw = 44 dB Multi-ply timber element, 135 mm: Rw = 37 dB 2 Double-leaf lightweight walls Lightweight separating walls in dry construction have a low mass; nevertheless, good to very good sound insulation values can be achieved with this form of construction.
