The Study of Method for Calculating Geometric Average Sound Intensity in Scattering Field
When calculating sound intensity by indirectly measuring way, the sound pressures obtained from two microphones should be mathematically averaged as the sound pressure of measured point. The research showed that the method exists lower of allowable value in the high frequency area. Using the geometric average value of two measured points to replace the sound pressure of measured point, studying the measurement of sound intensity in scattering field, the errors from which were compared. The result showed that the error of geometric average sound intensity was more flat than that of mathematic average. So the sound intensity obtained from geometric average sound pressure is more suitable for the measurement of a wider frequency range. And the computing time is short, which can raise the measurement efficiency and the real-time of measurement.
