German term or phrase:Terz
I realize that "Terz" means "a third" and I know that "Terzspektrum des Schalldrucks" refers to to the "third octave band" (Leo). But I wonder about the apparent use of use of "Terz" as a unit of measure in a Deutsche Bahn noise specification for new railcars, as in the following: "Das unbewertete Testspektrum des Schalldrucks darf eine grenzkurve, die bei einem 16Hz-Terz-Pegel beginnt und mit 2 dB pro terz abnimmt , nur wie folgt überschreiten." It's the "pro terz" that I'm asking about.
