Appendix A to ASTM C423 Sound Absorption Test Non-standard calculation of equivalent NRC Rating and Absorption Coefficients from spaced absorbers. 

At this time ASTM C423 does not provide a standard method for determining absorption coefficients of spaced object absorbers. Tests of a set of sound absorbing objects spaced apart from each other will yield higher absorption rates than a specimen joined together as a single patch (A-Mount or E-Mount). For this reason it is unfair to provide NRC or absorption coefficient ratings for specimens that consist of a spaced set of absorbers. Despite this, the architectural industry has expressed great demand for a simple "single number" rating for these treatments. Likewise, acoustical consultants desire equivalent absorption coefficient data for use in acoustical modeling programs. The following is an attempt to appease these demands until ASTM develops a standard method for calculation. An alternate non-standard calculation method is provided. 

Apparent Sound Absorption Coefficient calculated from total test surface area covered. 

The total sound absorption yielded by the specimen is divided by the total horizontal surface area of the test surface covered by the suspended baffles, including intermediate spaces. The baffle rigging covered 80.0 ft2 of horizontal test surface area. Apparent Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) rating and Sound Absorption Average (SAA) figures are calculated from this data based on the methods described in ASTM C423-09a. This may be the most accurate method for comparing baffle arrays to ceiling tile products. The apparent sound absorption coefficient data can be assigned to a single horizontal surface or plane in acoustical modeling software for approximation of baffle array performance (assuming baffle spacing is similar to that tested).
