Statistical guideline factor
The statistical directivity factor st (gamma) (also called directivity deviation factor or statistical directional factor ) is one of the variables used in acoustics to describe the directional characteristic of a sound source . It is defined as the ratio of the effective value of the sound pressure in a certain direction of radiation and distance to the effective value of the sound pressure averaged over all radiation directions at the same distance:
The statistical directivity factor is therefore dependent on the direction of radiation, values> 1 stand for preferred radiation directions.
In an analogous manner, receivers for sound such. B. microphones , specify a statistical directivity factor.
