This chapter introduces the requirements associated with acoustic performance in buildings and sound insulation properties of building partitions composed of cold-formed steel sections. Developments in experimental tests, analytical and numerical methods for determining acoustic performance of cold-formed steel buildings are presented. Design and construction methods for walls and floors using cold-formed steel sections to achieve desired acoustic performance are included. Recent research on cold-formed steel acoustic studs is highlighted. Typical acoustic performance values of building partitions using cold-formed steel sections are provided. Finally, acoustic design examples of a wall and a floor are described for reference.
