The directional diffusion coefficient characterizes directional uniformity of acoustic energy reflected from a structure. The goal of the paper is to check whether different measurement methods of that coefficient give comparable results and can be used for different diffusing structures. ISO 17497-2:2012 recommends two basic measurement methods for this parameter, both based on sound pressure analysis. In the first method, one microphone and a measurement manipulator is used (the space method), while in the second one, 19 microphones placed on the sound-reflecting plane are required (the boundary method). In the standard it is assumed (as usually in the room acoustics), that the acoustic energy is proportional to the square of sound pressure, what is true only for the plane wave. Correctness of this assumption was checked by the modified space method where the sound intensity probe was installed instead of microphone. The test revealed that pressure methods gave comparable results for both low- and high-diffusion structures, with the boundary method giving moderately higher values for low-diffusion structures and slightly higher for high-diffusion structures. The results obtained in the intensity method were comparable with the pressure method except for the 2000 Hz frequency range.
