The work presented in this PhD thesis was carried out at the Department of Construction Sciences of Lund University (Division of Engineering Acoustics), with Dr. Delphine Bard as my main supervisor, and Professor Per-Erik Austrell as my co-supervisor. The research reported on here was funded by the Silent Spaces project, a part of the EU program Interreg IV-A, by the Vinnova and Formas project AkuLite and by the WoodWisdom-Net project Silent Timber Build. The author highly appreciates the financial support provided. The simulations carried out in the frame of the PhD project were performed on resources provided by the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) at Lunarc, which is also acknowledged. First, I would like to thank my supervisor Dr. Delphine Bard for her continuous support and encouragement. Likewise, I am grateful to Professor Göran Sandberg for giving me the opportunity to join the department as a master thesis student back in 2010. I am also pleased to extend my greetings to all my colleagues at the Department of Construction Sciences for the nice moments spent together during fika breaks. Amongst all, my officemates and friends Peter Persson and Ola Flodén are especially acknowledged (thank you guys, without you I would have probably finished the PhD much earlier, but the journey would not have been as pleasant). Mr. Bo Zadig is also acknowledged for his invaluable help with the design of certain pictures included in the thesis. A word of thanks to my co-authors Arnaud Trollé, for nice talks, his very hard work and inestimable aid in matters related to statistics; and Anders Sjöström, for his help in general and with measurement related issues in particular. I would also like to express my gratitude to Håkan Hansson, my skånska teacher during my PhD project. My time is Sweden has been filled not just with knowledge but also with unforgettable experiences. However, living abroad is not always easy. Ups and downs kick in more frequently due to the closest ones being far away. These difficulties would never be possible to overcome without my family and my mates. Thanks so much to my Swedish family of friends, who have always been understanding and supportive, at the same time as sharing daily experiences here with me. Likewise, my friends from back home have also kept me going straight when needed. I am deeply grateful to my brother Alberto, for having walked all this way with me. Deserving of special mention are my parents Juan and Mariluz, for their endless love, patience, support and understanding throughout all my life. They have always unconditionally stood behind the cause. Nothing would be as it is if they didn’t encourage me to fight for what I am capable of, plus a little bit extra.
