Modelling the excitation force of a standard tapping machine on lightweight floor structures

  • Up to now the research and development in the field of building acoustics is based mainly on measurements. In consequence the development and optimization of a new building component is a very tedious and expensive task. A considerable reduction of these costs could be achieved, if the optimization relying on measurements would be replaced – at least to some extent – by a computational prediction model. For these models it is necessary to represent not only the component and the adjacent rooms but also the excitation in a suitable way. This paper gives an overview of models for the excitation generated by a standard tapping machine taking into account the interaction between the impacting steel cylinders of the tapping machine and the vibrating surface of the floor.
