A numerical investigation is performed into the diffusive effects of cylinders positioned in front of a Schroeder diffuser. A regular line of cylinders is shown to offer notable improvements to diffusion from a periodic Schroeder device, provided lateral cylinder spacing is incommensurable with the Schroeder period width. Further investigation considers angular dependence and low frequency results in greater detail, as well as the effects on narrowband and modulated Schroeder devices. An optimization procedure is subsequently performed to investigate the effects of an irregular cylinder arrangement, which provides further diffusive benefits. (C) 2010 Acoustical Society of America.
