Average absorption cross-section can be measured in a reverberation chamber with an uncertainty estimated from the number of independent samples of the chamber transfer function taken during the measurement. However the current uncertainty model does not account the loading effect of the object being measured or the presence of non-stochastic energy in the chamber, as characterized by the Rician K-factor. Here the uncertainty model for the absorption cross-section measurements has been extended to include both of these effects for the case of stepped mechanical tuning with a paddle and frequency tuning. The extended uncertainty formula has been applied to predicting the range over which absorption cross-section measurements can be made with a defined relative uncertainty in a chamber of given geometry, using both simple models for the reverberation chamber and the measured quality-factor and K-factor. The model has been validated using measurements on a set of absorbing cubes of different sizes compared to Mie Series calculation on sphere of equivalent surface area. The extended error model is particularly utile for the design of reverberation chambers and experiments for absorption cross-section measurements across a wide range of application areas.
