I am trying to figure out how to calculate octaves/minute for one of the shaker tests I am running. The original test request said that I needed to run a shaker test with a logarithmic Sine sweep from 10 to 2000 Hz and back to 10 Hz in a period of 20Minutes (10minutes/sweep). Now I want to change the log sine sweep from 10 to 200 Hz and back to 10 Hz (instead of 2000 Hz), now I want to find out what time it would have taken to go from 10 to 200Hz (had I swept it to 2000Hz in 10minutes). The software asks me to enter Octaves per Minute (instead of time) for new test requirement. Having a Master's in vibration I am a bit ashamed to say that I never seen this units of convention before in vibrations. Can someone help me how to figure out the octave per minute calculation(I somehow came to know it is about .764 for this particular case).
