Acousti-Ply ACOUSTICAL GUIDE
 
AC 118 - RESULTS OF MEASUREMENT OF THE SOUND
ABSORPTION COEFFICIENT
(ALPHA) BY THE REVEBERATION METHOD
 
Conducted by CSIRO - DIVISION OF BUILDING RESEARCH
 
The following test data is based on 7 mm thick 5 ply having 10.7mm round holes providing
a 21% perforation. The lining was fixed over nom 50mm thick insulation of apx 57kg/m
