Main Article Content
A hexahedron reverberation box has been developed through reverse engineering to study the reverberation time of fibrous felts in diffuse acoustic field condition. The study reinstated the frequency as a prime factor to understand the relation between noise control performance of a sample in transfer matrix method and diffused acoustic field condition. A new non-linear, bi-variant frequency dependent model was formulated through synchronization of impedance tube data and noise absorption coefficient calculated from reverberation time of the felts tested in the hexahedron box. The empirical model was validated for particle board based perforated absorber which yielded a comparable noise absorption value with a mean absolute error as low as 0.02. The reverberation box substantially reduces the size of samples for trial in nondestructive mode. The frequency dependent model for different absorber predicted the noise absorption property from calculated reverberation time (RT60), which would help in engineering specified samples for noise control. The novelty of the work lies in the fabrication of the reverberation box to work with frequency levels as low as 250 Hz i.e., above Schroeder frequency.
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.
