    Revision of E1503 - 12 Standard Test Method for Conducting Outdoor Sound Measurements Using a Digital Statistical Sound Analysis System

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1503 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: E33.09 | Committee E33 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Rationale: Standard E1779 Preparing a Measurement Plan for Conducting Outdoor Sound Measurements was retired within the last few years. However, much of the information contained in the Standard was considered useful. The following language is proposed as an Appendix to E1503. Once the language of this Appendix has been approved, a reference will be added to Section 1.3 of E1503. This document incorporates the comments generated by the previous ballots. The most disagreement occurred with the three Tables at the end of the document. The majority of respondents It was agreed that these three Tables at the end were confusing and added no value to the Appendix.
