BASTIAN® - Application papers

On the use of EN 12354

This page has been focused on fast publishing of information of general interest to users of the standard EN 12354 and of the BASTIAN ® software. The ISAC forum may contain newer papers and hints, contact us for membership.

  • CIB/WG 51 and Forum Acusticum 2002 discussed Kij between light-weight junctions and the work is carried on in COST FP 0702. This is a complicated matter. Hopefully, there will be extensions ready for CEN in 2012. See FAQ-adv.calc.
