A special data acquisition technique was applied to determine the acoustic plane-wave reflection and transmission properties of a plane-parallel aluminum plate. In this technique, the reflected and transmitted wavefield along a plane or line normal to the reflected or transmitted wave vector is recorded at equidistant receiver positions. The obtained traces are subsequently added up in the temporal domain to satisfy plane-wave conditions, thus effectively removing the effect of the limited beam of commonly used transducers. The agreement between plane-wave theory and experiment was found to be excellent, both in the temporal and in the frequency domain.
