ASTM WK30705

    Revision of E1050 - 08 Standard Test Method for Impedance and Absorption of Acoustical Materials Using A Tube, Two Microphones and A Digital Frequency Analysis System

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1050 - 12

    Developed by Subcommittee: E33.01 | Committee E33 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    In order to verify the precision and bias statement in the standard is correct, this work item will commission a round robin coordinated with ASTM C522 testing to establish the current repeatability and reproducibility for ASTM E1050 with multiple materials. It has been many years since a round robin was held for ASTM E1050.
