ISO3382 Noise Method

Description#

The ISO3382 Noised Method block determines the reverberation time based on calculations from ISO3382-2 (Acoustics) Measurement of room acoustic parameters โ€” Part 2: Reverberation time in ordinary rooms.

The reverberation time is calculated based on the interrupted noise method where a noise signal is interrupted and forms the rooms decay curve. Using exponential averaging the reverberation time T60, T30, or T20 is calculated.

Input#

Noise [P,pos1] is the interrupted noise signal that is M samples long and can be repeated 1 to N times.

Output#

Reverberation times is the calculated reverberation times in F bands. Default one band pr octave from 100 Hz to 4000 Hz.

Name#

Name specifies the name of the block.

Mode#

Mode specifies which type of reverberation time you want to calculate. You can choose between T60, T30, or T20.

Bands pr. octave#

Bands pr. octave species the number of bands you want to output pr octave.

Start frequency#

Start frequency specifies the frequency which should be in the first band.

Stop frequency#

Stop frequency specifies the frequency which should be in the last band.

Inputs#

Inputs specifies the number of inputs the block requires. Each input is a specific measurement position that are used.
