The Structural Acoustics Branch is housed in the Acoustics Research Laboratory (ARL) at NASA Langley Research Center.  Facilities in the ARL are used to conduct acoustic studies of aircraft components and models and to conduct subjective acoustic studies involving human test subjects. The primary research facilities used by StAB researchers include a reverberation chamber for absorption and qualification testing, a reverberant-anechoic suite for transmission loss testing, an acoustic liner impedance facility, and human-response-to-noise laboratories.
