16EDT is equal division of the third harmonic into 16 parts of 118.872 cents each (corresponding to 10.0949 EDO).

Properties

As the double of 8EDT, this division of the tritave is harmonically fraternal to 10EDO. Its unit step is ~1.128 cents flat of 1\10EDO. Unlike 10EDO, it does not really have a 7 or 13 because it is not using its approximation of 2 as equivalent though the accumulated flatness of a stack of its unit step leads to an excellent 13:21 and a decent 7:13. When twos are admitted, it turns into a tritave-repeating version of Blackwood temperament.
