How does it work?

First, we calculate the total mean absorption of the room according to your introduced data. Then, we choose Sabine or Eyring in function of this result, and obtain the Reverberation Time by using their formulas. Both Sabine and Eyring are good general approaches for reverberation time calculations but will give the best results for simple “shoebox shaped rooms”.

Sabine Eyring
Absorption coefficient $\bar\alpha < 0.2$ $\bar\alpha \geq 0.2$
Formula $RT = {{0.161 V}\over{\bar\alpha S} }$ $RT = {{0.161 V}\over{-S \ln (1- \bar\alpha)} }$
