Part of the Management and Industrial Engineering book series (MINEN)


This chapter presents a case study approach for Modelling and Simulation of Random Excitation Technique for Measurement of Acoustic Properties like acoustic impedance and reflection coefficient. The basic theory, experimental formulation and set-up required are discussed in detail. Adequate options are suggested, if there is a variation of requirements from the given scenario.
