Since room acoustic parameters require the sound power of the sound source. Few trials to publish the way of calibration and uncertainty estimation in details for the reference sound source. So, it is very interesting to find a way to calibrate the reference sound source that can be used in different acoustic measurements. Also, there is a need to find the value uncertainty of due to the calibration of reference sound source. Sound power level of any sound source can be determined by means of sound pressure level measurements performed in accordance to relevant ISO standards. The calibration of reference sound source according to ISO 6926 in a hemi-anechoic or reverberation room. In this case I only have the access to reverberation room, so the decision was to perform measurements at reverberation room. Kinds of measurement surfaces, enveloping the noise source, number of microphones and their positions over the measurement and the method for calculations of sound power are stated .Measurements of sound pressure level, reverberation time and background noise level were performed using traceable instruments by direct method in ISO3741. Then the calculation of sound power level in 1/3 octave band frequency was carried out for the reference sound source side by side with uncertainty contributions resulting from measurements. The values of uncertainty (Sigma R0 , Sigma omc) respectively are in order of magnitude of 0.4 and 0.07 dB. The total uncertainty lies within the range of 0.7-1.0dB in the 1/3 octave band frequency from 125Hz to 10000Hz.
Journal author rights
In order for Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration to publish and disseminate research articles, we need publishing rights. This is determined by a publishing agreement between the author and Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration. This agreement deals with the transfer or license of the copyright to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration and authors retain significant rights to use and share their own published articles. Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration supports the need for authors to share, disseminate and maximize the impact of their research and these rights, in Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration proprietary are defined below:
For subscription articles:
Authors transfer copyright to the publisher as part of a journal publishing agreement, but have the right to: Share their article for personal use (manuscript version); retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
For open access articles:
Authors sign an exclusive license agreement, where authors have copyright but license exclusive rights in their article to the publisher. In this case authors have the right to: share their article in the same ways permitted to third parties under the relevant user license; retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
Rights granted to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration
For both subscription and open access articles, published in proprietary titles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration is granted the following rights:
- The exclusive right to publish and distribute an article, and to grant rights to others, including for commercial purposes;
- For open access articles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration will apply the relevant third party user licence (Open access licencses) where Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration publishes the article on its online platforms;
- The right to provide the article in all forms and media so the article can be used on the latest technology even after publication;
- The authority to enforce the rights in the article, on behalf of an author, against third parties, for example in the case of plagiarism or copyright infringement.
