Abstract
A major problem in light-weight timber floors is their insufficient performance coping with impact noise in low frequencies. There are no prefabricated solutions available in Australia and New Zealand. To rectify this and enable the implementation of lig...

Abstract
The intent of this Chapter is to answer simple questions related to the definition of sound, its sources, quantification and methods of measurement, acceptable levels of sound, differences between sound and noise, etc. Of course, when verbalizing such questions, the solutions for sound control will be naturally unfolded to readers. This Chapter is intended to thoroughly separate myth from reality. The Chapter also introduces the International Building Code (IBC) requirements for sound insulation in buildings. State of the art construction details for CLT walls and floor/ceiling assemblies generally meeting IBC requirements are provided herein and are based on results of tests performed in various laboratories in the world and in the field by FPInnovations. A step by step construction practices guide then leads the reader towards the final goal, which is the occupants' satisfaction. We expect that after reading this Chapter, the reader will be in a position to acknowledge that CLT buildings can achieve satisfactory sound insulation levels if proper design and installation are followed. Note that, considering the short history of CLT construction, the journey is only beginning.

Abstract
A conversion of out-of-plane wave components into in-plane wave components at a junction may lead to increasing values of the flanking sound reduction index. The transformed components may contribute to sound radiation, if a reverse transformation occurs at a second junction...
