Balloon Explosion

Document Thumbnail

The work presented in this paper investigates different sound sources used for microphone measurement in an anechoic room. The microphone under test is measured using three different physical impulse-like sources: balloon explosions, sounds created using wood-planks, and revolver shots; and the results are compared with a measurement in which the sound is generated by a loudspeaker excited with a large band swept-sine signal. The frequency response functions of three different commercial microphones are measured and compared with the data provided by the manufacturer.
