© 2018 Elsevier Ltd In practical sound power measurements in an anechoic room, a baffle sometimes has to be used to support the sound source under test so that the anechoic room can be used as a hemi-anechoic room by laying a reflecting plane. To understand the effects of a finite size reflecting plane on measurements quantitatively, this paper investigates the effects of a disk on sound power measurements by formulating an exact solution to the problem based on the spheroidal wave functions. Three practical measurement cases are considered and the correction terms for the cases are presented based on numerical simulations. Experiments are conducted to validate the analytical solutions and numerical results.
