A test rig for a study of aero-acoustic phenomena over a sharp edge inside a duct is developed and described. The aero-acoustic losses over the edge are experimentally determined in quiescent air by measurements of a three-port, from which a power balance analysis yields the dissipated acoustic energy. The phenomenon of interest is interaction between the vortices shed by an acoustic wave propagating over a sharp edge and the wave itself. However, this phenomenon require high levels of particle velocity. The levels achieved are low, thus the dominating losses seen in the results are instead due to transfer of acoustic energy from sound waves into vibration energy in the splitter plate. This fact was observed by calculating the two-port scattering matrix over each sidebranch.
