Low-energy-consumption or so called pas sive- houses built of timber are known to combine an environmentally-friendly construction principle wit h high expectations on aesthetics and modern architecture. The number of multi-storey residential buildings erecte d in timber construction has been steadily increasing in the last few years, also in urban areas and centres. Compared to similar construction projects built in concrete the design of a multi-storey building in timber con struction is more demanding and challenging to the architect and construction engineer. Reasons for this are tougher requirements on fire safety regulations in these bu ildings as well as the absence of sufficient realized examples and design tools for the proof of performance of vibrat ion control and sound insulation. In a current project [1] these design tools shall be further developed by using a combination of FEM and SEA for the proof of perform ance.
