Definitions for "NRC"
an independent federal agency created in 1974 to license and regulate nuclear power plants
an independent agency established by the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 to regulate civilian use of nuclear materials. The NRC is headed by a five-member commission.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (established in 1974 as a successor to AEC to run civilian nuclear power program and radioisotope licensing and distribution program)
Noise Reduction Coefficient. A measure for rating the overall sound absorption performance of a material when used in an enclosed architectural space such as an office, where sound is being reflected at many angles of incidence. Specifically, it is the 4 frequency averaged absorption coefficients @ 250, 500, 1000 and 2000 Hz, rounded to the nearest 0.05. A material with NRC 0.50 is a poor absorber, and NRC .80 is a very good absorber.
NOISE REDUCTION COEFFICIENT. A measurement of a material's ability to absorb noise.
Noise Reduction Coefficient. The NRC of an acoustical material is the arithmetic average to the nearest multiple of 0.05 of its absorption coefficients at 4 one-third octave bands with center frequencies of 250, 500, 1000, 2000 Hertz. The NRC rating can be viewed as a percentage (example: .80 = 80%) of what soundwaves that come in contact with the acoustical material are absorbed by the material and NOT reflected back within the room.
