English abstract (article is in Dutch) In the EN 12354 series methods are described to predict the transmission of airborne sound, impact sound and sound due to service equipment in buildings. The basis for these methods as well as the gained experiences over the last years mainly concern traditional, rather heavy building methods. To be able to deal also with light weight building elements and building systems with higher damping, still various aspects need to be studied and incorporated in the models. Research in this area is going on in several places in Europe, also in the Netherlands, though on a rather small scale. This paper will discuss to what extent the existing prediction models could be used for light weight buildings, where adjustments and additions would be necessary and how that could be incorporated according to the currently available knowledge.
