    Abstract

    Possible explanations of the often reported systematic deviations between the results of conventional and intensity-based measurements of sound transmission loss are examined. Both the conventional diffuse-field method and the method based on measurement of sound intensity are subject to several fairly small but systematic errors of comparable size. The errors are more or less under the control of the experimenter. It is concluded that with very careful measurement procedures there are no systematic deviations between the two methods of determining transmission loss.
