THIS IS A FACE TO FACE WORKSHOP. DO NOT REGISTER IF YOU ARE NOT IN ADELAIDE.

This training will use the Mecanum PHI porosity and density meter - a special pycnometer specifically designed to obtain reliable measurements of the open porosity and true bulk density of open cell porous materials used in noise control.
The system is loosely based on the principle in ISO 4590 (air pycnometer, i.e. application of the Boyle-Mariotte law), but provides a more accurate measurement for very high porosity materials used in acoustics (φ is usually greater than 0.70).
