The dynamic stiffness of underlays is a required quantity to predict the reduction of impact and airborne noise transmitted through floating floors. The measurement of the dynamic stiffness is standardized in ISO 9052–1 using a floating floor section of 200 mm edge length. If open pore insulating materials are used for the underlay, the air flow and its flow resistivity have a significant impact on the dynamic stiffness. The standard ISO 9052–1 therefore calculates the dynamic stiffness based on three distinct intervals of the flow resistivity. This contribution analyses and discusses the mathematical origin and practical consequences of these three standardized intervals and proposes an improvement for a revision of the standard. The current physical model is expanded to examine if the results, that are gained from the geometrically reduced systems of the standard, can be transferred to room sized systems.
