Asymmetric Clipped Waveform  Find Average
Posted:

I have an asymmetrical clipped repeating waveform and I want to be able to find the root mean square.
The function is as follows, with r and b constants:
y(t) = ((exp(sin(t)*b)exp(sin(t)*b*r))/(exp(sin(t)*b)+exp(sin(t)*b)))*(1/b)
This is pretty computationally heavy. What are some approaches to use to get to a simpler root mean square? Should I use a Fourier transform?
