Abstract

Presentation given at Acoustics 2012 Hong Kong, 163rd Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), 9th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of China (ASC), the 11th Meeting of the Western Pacific Acoustics Conference (WESPAC), and the Hong Kong Institute of Acoustics (HKIOA), organized by the Hong Kong Institute of Acoustics, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Program

An energy flux streamline model was developed in support of a simple Lloyd’s mirror experiment originally intended for use by high school students wherein 10 000 Hz harmonic sound, emitted from a roughly 10 cm diameter baffled loudspeaker, was reflected off a floor, treated as a rigid boundary. The model is used to draw out similarities and differences between energy flux streamlines and acoustic rays. Particular attention is paid to conditions and angles of reflection that hold for acoustic rays reflected from a rigid boundary versus the conditions that hold for the equivalent reflection and reflection angles of energy flux streamlines.
