Acoustics & Vibration


This high-tech laboratory is run by staff with more than the ten years’ experience.

Laboratory testing is carried out according to criteria laid down by the main European and international standards bodies, i.e. UNI, DIN, ISO, AFNOR, BSI, ASTM.

Technicians participate in the Acoustics Working Group meetings and contribute to the drawing up and editing of standards.

The laboratory is a member of the AIA (Italian Acoustics Association) and appears in the list of notified laboratories for initial type testing for of EC marking for the Construction Products Directive (CPD) and Noise Emission Directive 2000/14/EC.

Main activities:
  • Determination of sound insulation in the laboratory on building elements.
  • Determination of sound insulation in the laboratory on small building elements.
  • Determination of the coefficient of acoustic absorption and/or of the area of equivalent absorption in a reverberation chamber.
  • Laboratory Measurement of impact sound insulation for floating systems, according to UNI EN ISO 10140-3 (screed poured during installation).    
  • Measurement of dynamic stiffness according to UNI EN 29052-1.
  • Determination of airflow resistance according to UNI EN 29053.
  • Measurement of sound power level in a reverberation chamber
  • Characterisation of road traffic noise reducing devices according to UNI EN 1793/4, the Italian Railways, (FFSS) and Italian Motorways Association (Società Autostrade).
