||Relevance of "grab" sampling methods for assessing the noise levels in factories
||Pertinence de l'échantillonnage "en aveugle" pour l'estimation des niveaux sonores en entreprises [in French]|

||Several grab sampling techniques, proposed for assessing the A-weighted daily equivalent sound pressure level (Leq), have been tested at 28 workstations with fluctuating noise levels. The actual Leq, obtained over an 8h period, was compared with estimates obtained from a number of sampling parameters. From the difference between actual and estimated values of Leq, it appears that grab sampling generally tends to underestimate Leq (sometimes considerably) and that the predicted confidence intervals are not generally taken into consideration. In cases where grab sampling does give statistically reliable results, accuracy is better served by increasing the number of samples than their duration.
