ESDU - The relation between sound pressure level and r.m.s. fluctuating pressure.

Organization: ESDU
Publication Date: 1 September 1978
Page Count: 2
scope:

ESDU 66018 provides a means of converting a sound pressure level in decibels to a root mean square value of fluctuating pressure. These data are often required when estimating structural loadings from noise data. Data are provided as equations for r.m.s. fluctuating pressures in both British and SI units. A graphical presentation, for sound pressure levels in the range 90 to 165 dB, is given for r.m.s. pressure in pascals.
