To give the student training in making acoustical measurements, and provide a
comprehension of advanced measurement systems.
• Use and calibration of: microphones, accelerometers, probe microphones and intensity
probes. Calibrators, pistonphones, electrostatic actuators.
• Measurement methods and equipment: Sine sweep and octave band analysis, MLS, TDS,
and FFT. Stimuli types (sine, swept sine, white/pink noise, impulses, and pseudo
random sequences). Digital interfaces for measurement equipment (IEEE-488/GPIB).
• Measurement of (e.g.): SPL, amplitude and phase response, impulse response, and
sensitivity. Impedance measurements. Intensity, sound power.
• Evaluation of measurement errors: signal-to-noise ratio, crosstalk, windowing, time
averaging, linear/exponential weighting, physical set-ups.
