AbstractThis Note describes an acoustical investigation of flat ceiling properties in an open office. The experiments were concerned particularly with the effects of different ceiling materials, baffle configurations and screen arrangements. The results obtained are analyzed in terms of articulation index giving a single figure rating that facilitates comparisons. A short theoretical outline of screen-ceiling interaction emphasizes the important ceiling and screen parameters and refers to areas where new test procedures are needed.
