In buildings built with new techniques there exists a need for better understanding of their acoustical performance. The development of large wooden houses slows down by the uncertainty and costly testing that have to be performed many times before gaining good results. A greater understanding of the sound insulation for lightweight buildings have the possibility to speed up the development of new techniques and in the end give tenants better quality of life. This study uses Fourier sinus series to calculate the vibrations on a rib stiffened plate. The beams are modelled as line forces and moments that reacts onto the plate vibrations. A parameter study is performed with the aim to identify the most important parameters and their behaviour. The preliminary results show that the attenuation of the system is by far most evident in the direction across the beams. The influence from the basic input parameters on the attenuation is then studied. And it is preliminary shown that the placement of the excitation force within a bay actually is irrelevant for the calculated attenuation.
