In the course of the infrastructure project Akustik Center Austria, Holzforschung Austria built a unique acoustic laboratory for lightweight constructions at their research location in Stetten. The research project is conducted within the framework of COIN, a promotional programme sponsored by the Austrian Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW) as well as the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) and administered by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).
German spoken presentation of the opening 22nd October 2015 (7,5 mb)
Akustik Center Austria is your qualified partner for questions concerning building acoustics, accredited tests and research projects.
The application-oriented results obtained by the Akustik Center Austria will not only strengthen the competitiveness of timber construction, but also help to shape the future of multi storey buildings made by wood.
Apart from standardized and accredited testing methods (sound reduction index of windows, doors, facades, walls, ceilings and impact sound pressure level of ceiling components and improvements of flooring components) it will also be possible to carry out investigations in the extended frequency range (below 100 Hz), tests regarding flanking transmission and free field examinations of facades.
The capacity utilization of the Akustik Center Austria is ensured by cooperating with tgm (Federal Institute of Technology) and TU Wien (Technical University Vienna). Due to this collaboration Akustik Center Austria can offer substantiated analysis in the field of building acoustics to the Austrian economy, combining the expertise of Holzforschung Austria regarding timber constructions the competences of tgm in the field of subjective perception and TU Wien’s know-how in modelling and simulation.
