Running a test in an intensity based measuring facility
AbstractIntensity measurement has opened new prospects in many areas of diagnostic acoustics, but it is generally accompanied by the need for greater data gathering, strict discipline in measurement procedure, and involved data processing prior to result assessment. One consequence is the introduction of additional areas of potential error. This paper presents the semi-automated procedures developed at the Centre for Building Studies to minimize user error in the running of a typical laboratory test. A sound transmission loss measurement is used as an example. An overview is also given of the new intensity based measurement facility established at the Centre for Building Studies
