New Guide for Test Specimen Preparation for Acoustical Material Testing

1. Scope

The development of standards on the characteristics and performance of materials, products, systems and services relating to the acoustical environment and the promotion of related knowledge. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interest.


absorption; acoustical materials; airflow resistance, airflow resistivity; band saw; cutting die; impedance; impedance tube; lathe; normal incidence; transmission loss; water cutting machine


A standard guide for test specimen preparation for acoustical material testing should improve within- and between-laboratory precision for several existing standard test methods, including ASTM C384, ASTM C522, ASTM E1050, and ASTM E2611.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
