The length of time that it takes for the reverberation to be down to one millionth its original strength. It is measured in seconds.
The time taken for the overall sound level of reflections to decay to 60dB below the initial level. Go to Index.
The time it takes for Reflected Sound to Dissipate to an inaudible level. Some Reverberation in the listening room is desirable, but too much will create echoes, making the music sound confused and untidy. The bathroom is a good example of a highly reverberant room, because of its many hard and reflective surfaces and little if any Sound Absorbing surfaces. A good method of Gauging the Reverberation Time of a particular room is the simple hand clap, to see how much Echo there is after the Initial Clap.
Time required for the sound pressure level in a room to decay to a value one millionth of its original intensity, or to drop 60 decibels.
The time taken for sound to decay 60 dB to 1/1,000,000 of its original sound level after the sound source has stopped. Sound after it has ended will continue to reflect off surfaces until the wave loses enough energy by absorption to eventually die out. Reverberation time is the basic acoustical property of a room, which depends only on its dimensions and the absorptive properties of its surfaces and contents. Reverberation has an important impact on speech intelligibility.
The time it takes for a sound generated in a room to drop to 60dB below its original level. It is a measure of the size and reflectivity of the room boundary surfaces. A typical listening room measuring about 2.5 X 6.5 X 3.75 meters (HLW) will have a Reverberation Time of about 0.4 seconds. Major concert halls have a far longer RT in the region of 1.5 to 2.5 seconds.
The time it takes for reverberation to decay by 60 dB (roughly, to inaudibility) after the sound source has ceased. See: Sabine.
The reverberation time of a room is the time it takes for sound to decay by 60 dB once the source of sound has stopped. Reverberation time is the basic acoustical property of a room which depends only on its dimensions and the absorptive properties of its surfaces and contents. Reverberation has an important impact on speech intelligibility.
The amount of time it takes for reverberation to die down.
The amount of time it takes the reverberation to decay 60 dB from the level of the original sound.
As defined by W.C. Sabine, Reverberation Time (RT) is the time taken for a continuous sound within a room to decay by 60 dB after being abruptly switched off. Sabine carried out a considerable amount of research in this area and arrived at an empirical relationship between the volume of an auditorium, the amount of absorptive material within it and a quantity which he called the Reverberation Time.

Sound after it is ended at the source will continue to reflect off surfaces until the sound wave loses energy by absorption to eventually die out.
The length of time required for the sound field to collapse, after the sound source has stopped.
the time required for a steady sound pressure level in an enclosed space to decay by 60dB
The reverberation time of a room is the time it takes for sound to decay by 60 dB once the source of sound has stopped. Reverberation time is inversely related to sound absorption and is a way to measure the amount of absorption in a room.
An acoustical measure of how quickly sound diminishes in a particular space (such as a classroom). Ideally, classrooms should have a reverberation time of about half a second.
