Paper Abstract

An active system which improves the absorbent properties of a porous material sample in free field is presented. The method, which is based on the `(lambda) /4 resonance absorber' principle, associated active and passive means: a pressure minimization is achieved at the rear face of a porous layer to realize an impedance matching between its surface and the acoustic incident waves. The performances of a system including a single secondary loudspeaker, then a 3 X 3 array, are presented under normal and oblique incidence, for low frequencies under 1000 Hz.
