for Absorption and Transmission Loss Calculation
for Multi-Layer Systems
This program can be used
to determine the relative performance of various
layer thicknesses and materials in an architectural
setting. It computes the composite airborne
Transmission Loss (the difference in noise on
the sound and receiver of the partition) and
the normally incident sound absorption coefficient
(a measure of the sound reflecting property
of the composite). This can result in much more
efficient acoustics and sound control.
- A composite of up to 20
different layers can be evaluated with 95%
- Save time by helping to
determining your sound control requirements
- Save money on consultant
- In house knowledge base
of your vessel's sound control assessment
- Security in the knowledge
that the program was developed by two of the
world's foremost authorities in sound control
and acoustics (both of whom are members of
the MSC engineering
- Simple to use with
your personal computer.
