Development of a Standing Wave-Tube System for Acoustical Property Measurement of Sound Absorption Materials Used on Vehicles
A standing wave-tube system for acoustical property measurement of vehicle-used sound absorption materials is developed in this paper. Theoretically, the standing wave ratio method and the two-cavity method with two-microphone configurations are combined and applied for calculating some acoustical parameters, such as sound absorption ratio, reflection coefficient, characteristic impedance, propagation constant, of a sample material. Based on the combined method, the standing wave-tube system including two microphones, an A/D board, a signal amplifier, a DSP computer and a set of software is carefully designed and performed. The verification results suggest that the newly designed system is accurate for acoustical property measurement of the materials used on vehicles. It can be directly used for selecting noise-control materials in vehicle acoustical designs.
