Our Novelty Testing Program

RAL will be performing a series of self-sponsored tests and publishing the results for wide dissemination across the acoustics community. Send us your suggestions for our next test! We are looking to test commodity materials or systems where data is needed but does not exist due to a lack of a traditional sponsor.

The Rules:

  • Test samples should be made from commodity materials, no specific acoustical product systems
  • The tests would not have a conventional sponsor interest, so they are not likely to happen in the acoustical testing marketplace
  • The results have some utility or interest to the broad acoustics community
