Session: Thursday Afternoon, June 19


Accredited Standards Committee S1 on Acoustics. Working group chairs will report on their preparation of standards on methods of measurement and testing, and terminology, in physical acoustics, electroacoustics, sonics, ultrasonics, and underwater sound. Work in progress includes measurement of noise sources, noise dosimeters, integrating sound-level meters, and revision and extension of sound level meter specifications. Open discussion of committee reports is encouraged. The international activities in ISO/TC 43 Acoustics, and IEC/TC 29 Electroacoustics, will also be discussed. The chairs of the respective U.S. Technical Advisory Groups for ISO/TC 43 (P. D. Schomer) and IEC/TC 29 (V. Nedzelnitsky), will report on current activities of these international Technical Committees. Scope of S1. Standards, specifications, methods of measurement and test and terminology in the field of physical acoustics including architectural acoustics, electroacoustics, sonics and ultrasonics, and underwater sound, but excluding those aspects which pertain to biological safety, tolerance and comfort.
