Damping Value Conversion Calculator

Here is a Matlab GUI script which converts between various damping metrics:  damping.zip

The supported metric include:

quality factor Q
fraction of critical damping [zeta]
loss factor [eta]
3 dB Bandwidth [delta omega]
3 dB Bandwidth [delta f]
damping frequency [fd]
decay constant [sigma]
time constant [tau]
reverberation time [RT60]
decay Rate D
logarithmic decrement [delta]
