T5 - ELECTROACOUSTIC MEASUREMENTS—PART 1
Christopher J. Struck, CJS Labs - San Francisco, CA, USA
This tutorial focuses on the fundamentals of electroacoustic measurements, including principles of acoustics, instrumentation, and data interpretation as well as practical information on how to perform appropriate tests. The basic components of a measuring system are examined followed by a review of basic acoustics, signals, sound sources, and sound fields. Psychoacoustics and hearing are examined with respect to objective measurements. Measurement transducers are explained in terms of selection and application. Finally, an overview of frequency analysis and the FFT is presented. This tutorial is intended to enable the participants to perform accurate audio and electroacoustic tests and provide them with the necessary tools to understand and correctly interpret the results.
