This repository contains the supporting data for the paper entitled "Acoustic Validation of a BEM-Suitable 3D Mesh Model of KEMAR'', K. Young, G. Kearney, and A. I. Tew, at the 2018 AES International Conference on Spatial Reproduction - Aesthetics and Science, Tokyo. Available at: http://www.aes.org/e-lib/browse.cfm?elib=19662. Please cite both the paper and dataset if used.
Note: the azimuth angle system used in this work increments positively in the left direction, such that 90° is on the left and 270° is on the right. In elevation, -90° is below, +90° is above.

Data Dimensions:
M1 = number of measured source positions, in this case 185
M2 = number of simulated source positions, in this case 10,205
R = number of channels, in this case 2, where 1 and 2 correspond to left and right respectively
N1 = number of samples in measured impulse responses, in this case 1024
N2 = number of samples in generated impulse responses, in this case (number of samples in HRTF*2)+2 = 400
N3 = number of samples in simulated transfer functions, in this case, the number of frequency points, 199
