Semi-anechoic room
Dec 25, 2018

Example application – diffuser scattering

The standard method for testing room acoustic diffusion coefficients was developed as part of a research project at Salford. The most efficient method is done in a semi-anechoic chamber with all the microphones, the loudspeaker and diffuser sample placed on the hard floor in a boundary plane measurement. The absorbent walls and ceiling then prevent unwanted reflections. The room is quiet so background noise doesn’t affect measurement accuracy.

Example application – public engagement

Television has always enjoyed filming in our anechoic chambers. Our first chamber was used as a mock up of a torture chamber for  TV, and more recently,Producers like the anechoic chamber, but often use the semi-anechoic because of problems setting up equipment on a trampoline floor. We filmed high speed footage of acoustic phenomena in this room, and have used it to make videos for use in classrooms.
