There are more and more cases of human health disorder due to particular acoustic conditions of the buildings. Acoustic covers play an important role in civil engeneering. Civil engeneer has to use his experience to ensure the human acoustic welfare. We can correlate the sound with the vibrations it produces. Vibrations are very dangerous for buildings. One of the most causes of disturbance is treadmill.

It is a noise generated by falling objects and the human walk. There are different types of recovery itervention but the best intervention is the creation of countermeasures during the costrution of the building. The choise of the intervention is influenced from the costs of the intervention itself. The following are examples and applications of different technological choises.
