Abstract:
The measurement of sound absorption coefficient (SAC) of porous materials is covered by both American and international standards. However, by using the standards alone it is difficult to achieve consistently repeatable results given the large number of variables such as sample cutting and preparation, sample fit and position in the tube, and sample material variability. This paper will review the standards briefly and examine what is available in the literature to guide users in making consistently repeatable SAC measurements. The paper will also show some of the authors' results and interpret these results in light of the standards and technical literature on the subject.
