The Schlieren pulsed method uses short-term lighting triggered by an acoustic pulse. This allows for an observation of elastic deformation fields in pulsed regime and for an evaluation of the evolution of the pulse in the interior of homogenous and heterogeneous media. In this paper we apply the Schlieren pulsed method to determine the conditions of the change from simple to multiple scattering. An ultrasound transducer put in water emits a wide-band pulse. The pulse goes through a region of parallel cylindrical wires, uniformly spaced and perpendicular to the acoustic beam. Varying the width of the zone of the scatterer cylinders, it is possible to optically observe the transmitted acoustic field and to calculate the transmission coefficient. By studying the behavior of this coefficient in function of the medium width, we obtained the zone in which the transition between simple arid multiple scattering happens.
