It is shown that Kuttruff's “temporal diffussion” A, being a measure for the number and the strength of periodic reflections in a room, is a valuable measure too for the perceived coloration of sound (“repetition pitch”) in that room caused by such periodicities (comb-filter effect).

The thresholds of perception of repetition pitch may be predicted by means of a short-time autocorrelation model of the hearing organ. A simple relation between the physiological threshold criterion and A will prove to be valid.

  • Acta Acustica united with Acustica, published together with the European Acoustics Association (EAA), is an international, peer-reviewed journal on acoustics. It publishes original articles on all subjects in the field of acoustics, such as general linear acoustics, nonlinear acoustics, macrosonics, flow acoustics, atmospheric sound, underwater sound, ultrasonics, physical acoustics, structural acoustics, noise control, active control, environmental noise, building acoustics, room acoustics, acoustic materials, acoustic signal processing, computational and numerical acoustics, hearing, audiology and psychoacoustics, speech, musical acoustics, electroacoustics, auditory quality of systems. It reports on original scientific research in acoustics and on engineering applications. The journal considers scientific papers, technical and applied papers, book reviews, short communications, doctoral thesis abstracts, etc. In irregular intervals also special issues and review articles are published.
