    Abstract

    Vibration transmission through plate/beam structures typical of lightweight buildings is examined in this paper. Modelling difficulties are analysed and related to the several modelling choices available, including connection type, beam modelling, modal properties and material properties. A number of key experiments carried out on structures made of one or two parallel plates attached with screws to a single beam are discussed, and the applicability and limitations of fundamental theories are identified through the use of Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) models. It is shown that the interrelation between the various modelling factors can lead to complex models. The structures and frequency ranges for which simple point models can be used are identified, as well as those for which more complex models need to be used.
