Abstract: The major objective of this thesis is to present a simple computative method for the prediction of airborne sound transmission through light-weight building partitions. A satisfactory theoretical analysis of the qualitative as well as the quantitative study of the mechanism of sound transmission is discussed in detail. Throughout this work a systematic comparison between predicted and measured results is made by conducting a large series of measurements of commonly constructed light-weight partitions. The satisfactory agreement between theory and experiment achieved in the study has advanced towards a long-term objective in the sound-transmission technology of building partitions whereby their sound transmission loss performance can be predicted in a simple manner basing only on the knowledge of their basic physical properties. This will then allow the designer of a building to select partition materials and to devise the component design without having to verify the sound transmission performance by elaborate laboratory-measured data. The thesis ends with suggestions regarding the trends of further research work of sound transmission study of building partitions that must be direct towards and pursued in the near future.
