It has the quite unusual feature of graphite-covered wool wedges in order to improve the anechoic properties for electromagnetic waves. 2 Reno Berg was also one of the founders of the Nordic Acoustical Society, founded on 19 June 1954 which happened to be the day of the 25th anniversary of the Acoustical Society of America.
Different absorption coefficients were introduced—sort of. Surfaces were classified as totally reflecting, totally absorbing, or audience (which were also considered as totally absorbing). The motivation was that the room shape determined, to a large degree, the amount of early energy and its spatial distribution. There were clearly some simplifications compared to what is common today, but some of these were commented by the authors in . On the topic of specular reflections: “However, in the actual design of a hall, one may also wish to know the effects of changes in details, such as the introduction of diffusing wall elements.
