Flanking Sound Transmission

In sound transmission measurement, the transmission of sound from the sound source room to the receiving room by paths other than through the partition under test. Flanking transmission may include structure-borne sound transmission.

In this simplified example the isolated double barrier is let down by the flanking paths through the roof and floor space and unsealed electrical outlets.
