Grazing incidence on an acoustic tile, how to determine grazing angle?

  1. Nov 14, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Acoustic tile which is locally reacting, for a frequency of 400 Hz, it has a normal-incidence specific impedance of 1500+i3700 (Kg/m2s). A plane wave in Air of 400 Hz sound with a pressure level of 86 dB in the absence of reflection is incident on the tile at an Angle X. How close must X be to grazing incidence for resulting sound presure level just at the surface of tile to be less than 83 dB? determine and plot the absorption coefficient as a function of the incidence angle X.

    how do i solve this problem?


    2. Relevant equations

    for air, rho*c=400.
    Grazing angle X is to be close to 90 degrees. but how do i calculate this angle for given SPL levels of 86 dB and 83 dB?
