DESIGN OF ACOUSTICAL INSULATION FOR EXISTING RESIDENCES IN THE VICINITY OF SAN JOSE MUNICIPAL AIRPORT
The vicinity of the San Jose Municipal Airport includes a large number of residences that lie in land-use zones that are acoustically incompatible with California state requirements. Analyzed in the current study was a sample of 10 residences of various ages, locations, and structure types within this incompatible residential class. Retrofit designs were developed for each structure to reduce interior sound levels, based on simultaneous indoor-outdoor sound level measurements and on architectural acoustical analysis of the structure. Follow-up sound level measurements were conducted to establish the success of original acoustical predictions for interior sound levels.
