Use the following sequence to get the Articulation Index (AI) vs rotational speed:
- Perform waterfall analysis on your noise signal (+ tacho). This gives you a standard waterfall display
- On the waterfall result perform the analysis
Analysis->Noise, Vibration and Harshness->Spectrum Input->Sound Quality Auto Extract
Number of Cylinders = x (set to appropriate value)
Write metrics to Input dataset = True
Set required metric to True
In this case select either $AI_ANSI or $AI_VEH.
These are different calculations with
AI_ANSI is calculated in the range 0 to 1
AI_VEH is calculated as percentage in range 0 to 100
