44, it is also necessary for the three sound waves on either side of the boundary to propagate at the same phase velocity along the boundary. This means that the angle of reflection must be the same as the angle of incidence. 4 ​Oblique sound incidence on a plane impedance boundary. The wave vector components in the y-direction must be the same for all three waves, since the wave numbers are based on the frequency of sound and the phase velocity. The wave number, which we have studied so far, is just the magnitude of the wave vector.

5 shows a cut through a cylindrical tube, having a cross section area S = πb2 and maximum and minimum dimensions corresponding to the limits mentioned previously. 70) If the tube is truncated by a hard wall at x = 0, the particle velocity perpendicular to the wall must be zero, and the incident wave will be fully reflected by the discontinuity. The reflection coefficient will be 1 because of the hard wall, and the reflected wave is subject to the same impedance as the incoming wave (except for sign).

Using these curves, it is possible to calculate corresponding values for the attenuation coefficient m. Notice that the gas mixture of air involves several relaxation processes. The standard ISO 9613-1:1993 (E) can be used to calculate the attenuation of sound in air for general combinations of temperature and relative humidity. 3 ​Attenuation in dB/m for sound propagation in air as a function of frequency at a temperature of 20°C and with relative humidity, RH, as a parameter. 3 mx. 8 REFLECTION AND TRANSMISSION AT BOUNDARIES When a sound wave is incident on the boundary between two media, or on a boundary where the characteristic impedance of a medium changes, part of the power in the incident wave may be reflected and some transmitted.
