Type 9740 is a state-of-the-art normal incidence absorption measurement system for non-destructive, in situ quality assurance measurements of the acoustic properties of ISO 10844 regulated test track asphalt according to the ISO 13472-2 test procedure.
Affixed directly to the surface of an ISO 10844 regulated test track, Type 9740 is used to measure the absorption coefficient of the asphalt without drilling a core sample according to ISO 13472-2. The system is based on a two-microphone, transfer-function test method, where the test system makes simultaneous measurements at all frequencies of interest while taking only a fraction of the time required by traditional, standing-wave ratio systems.
- Research and quality control absorption measurements
- Measurement of the acoustic properties of test tracks based on ISO 10844 according to ISO 13472-2
- Measurement of:
- Acoustic absorption coefficient
- Acoustic reflection coefficient
- Normalized impedance
- Measurements on complex or composite materials
- Measurements on orientation-sensitive materials
This system comprises:
- PULSE Acoustic Material Testing Type 7758-A
- Road Surface Absorption Measurement Tube WA-1599
- LAN-XI data acquisition unit including a LAN-XI Type 3160-A-042
The system has all the benefits of the PULSE platform, including advanced features for calibration, measurement, display and reporting, and a task-oriented user-interface. It also contains all the functionality of the standard material testing software, which is a complete and fully integrated system for making acoustic measurements in the frequency range 220 Hz to 1.8 kHz with narrow-band analysis, and 250 Hz to 1.6 kHz with 1/3-octave band analysis.
- The LAN-XI data acquisition hardware and PULSE analysis system provides high speed and accuracy
- Enables measurements to be viewed in real-time for ease of monitoring
- It supportsd wider tubes for measurements down to 50 Hz: Impedance Tube Kit Type 4206 (50 Hz– 6.4 kHz) or Type 4206-A (100 Hz–3.2 kHz)
- Results exportable to Microsoft Excel for ease of data sharing and reporting
