Laboratory measurement of walking noise on floors

This European Standard specifies a laboratory measurement method to determine noise radiated from a floor covering on a standard concrete floor when excited by a standard tapping machine.

Critical bandwidth differs within the frequency range. Note 2 to entry:
The critical band produces the critical band scale. Its unit is Bark." 4 Principle A floor test facility according to EN ISO 10140 for impact and airborne sound measurements is used. It consists of two medium sized and medium damped rooms above each other, separated by a standard homogeneous concrete floor. As a walking noise source, a standard tapping machine according to EN ISO 10140 is applied. Several average sound pressure level measurements in third-octave bands are made in the upper and lower rooms with the bare floor either uncovered or covered with pads or sufficiently large "full-size" specimens of the tested flooring. In the upper room the reverberation times with large specimens and with merely pads present shall be determin
