Construction of a Measuring Apparatus to Record Directly Curves of Hydroacoustic Impedance in a Kundt Tube
The present paper describes the development of a measuring apparatus to investigate acoustic properties of absorbers for underwater sound. A Kundt tube for underwater sound was constructed which may be operated in the frequency range of 1 kHz to 20 kHz at variable temperatures and variable static pressures (up to 40 at). The apparatus permits the choice of operation either by the pulse-echo-method or continuous wave operation by determining sound pressure and particle velocity simultaneously at a given location in the tube. The ratio of these two quantities is formed by an appropriate electronic apparatus. Thus the complex impedance or reflection coefficient can be recorded directly. The particle velocity is obtained from a pressure gradient microphone which is followed by an analogue integrator. Examples illustrate where the automatic registration of the curves can be applied and how it compares with the pulse-echo-method.
