A simple, nondestructive method to suppress pressure pulses in fluid-filled piping was proposed and theoretically analyzed in the previous companion paper. In this paper, the proposed method is verified experimentally. The results of experiments performed for the range of parameters of practical importance indicated that the attenuation of pressure pulses was sufficiently large for practical applications and in accordance with the theoretical predictions. This paper describes the experimental setup and the test models of the proposed pulse suppression devices and discusses the experimental results. In particular, the measured attenuation factors (transmitted pressure/incident pressure) are presented and compared with the theoretical predictions.
