Sets out engineering methods for measuring the sound pressure levels on a measurement surface enveloping the source and for calculating the sound power level produced by the source. Applies to sources which radiate broad-band noise, narrow-band noise, discrete tones and combinations of such components. Specifies procedures which apply to steady noise and to non-steady noise with the exception of an isolated burst of sound energy or a burst train with a repetition rate less than 10 s.

This standard sets out engineering methods for measuring the sound pressure levels on a measurement surface enveloping the source and for calculating the sound power level produced by the source. It gives requirements for the test environment and instrumentation as well as techniques for obtaining the surface sound pressure level from which the A-weighted sound power level of the source and octave or one-third octave band sound power levels are calculated.NOTES:1. This standard is concerned with specification of the basic acoustic requirements for the measurement of noise under free-field conditions over a reflecting plane. It is important that specific test codes for various types of equipment be established and used as the basis for measurements according to this standard. Such test codes will, for each type of equipment, give detailed requirements on mounting, loading and operating conditions for the equipment under test as well as descriptions of the measurement surface, the number of microphone positions, and the measurement distance to be used.2. The use of different measurement surfaces may yield differing estimates of the sound power level of a source. Measurements on a given family of equipment should all be based on the same shape of measurement surface. The test method for a particular type of equipment should give detailed information on the particular measurement surface that is selected.
