Steel studs are used in double walls to provide structural stability. This creates a vibration transmission path between leaves that can often be more critical than the airborne path through the cavity. Some of the existing models for sound transmission consider the studs as elastic springs. The spring stiff ness may be taken as the cross-section elastic stiff ness of the stud, but this leads to an underestimation of the vibration transmission. A procedure to obtain more accurate parameters to be used in vibration and sound insulation models is presented. The results show that they must be obtained from dynamic models and/or experiments.
