ISO 10848 (all parts) specifies measurement methods to characterize the flanking transmission of one or several building components. This document considers only laboratory measurements.
The measured quantities can be used to compare different products, or to express a requirement, or as input data for prediction methods, such as ISO 12354‑1 and ISO 12354‑2. However, the measured quantities Dn,f, Ln,f and Lne0,f only represent the performance with the dimensions for the test specimens described in this document.
ISO 10848-2:2017 is referred to in ISO 10848‑1:2017, 4.5 as being a supporting part of the frame document. It applies to Type B elements as defined in ISO 10848‑1, such as suspended ceilings, access floors, light uninterrupted façades or floating floors. The transmission from one room to another can occur simultaneously through the test element and via the plenum (if any). For measurements made according to this document, the total sound transmission is determined and it is not possible to separate the two kinds of transmission.
