The seminar took place in Stockolm, on the 28-29 April 2015.

Acoustic calculation tools for timber structures are of big importance for the timber industry in order to overcome any uncertainties regarding prediction of their performance. This seminar has been arranged by the European project Silent Timber Build in cooperation with the Swedish Forest Industries. (See the seminar programme)
