QMA measures the elastic properties of a wide range of materials used for noise control. The measurement is based on standard ISO 18437-5 and uses disc-shaped samples.


Measured Properties



The QMA is used by the world’s leading materials suppliers in both the automotive and aircraft industries for:

  • Quality control in the manufacturing process of materials

  • R&D applications

  • Feeding acoustical prediction software

The elastic properties measured with the QMA are compatible with the Biot’s poro-elasticity equations and leading noise control prediction codes such as: NOVA and VA One.


QMA system includes:

  • QMA hardware

  • Embedded USB DAQ system

  • QMA-X software

  • A certified verification sample to validate the test procedure

The QMA-X software fully controls the measurement and calculates the statistics on the measurement of the elastic properties. The measurement frequency range is typically 20-100 Hz. The QMA works with disc-shaped samples.
