The report presents the A-weighted sound level and one-third octave band spectral data resulting from a study conducted to characterize the noise generated by military truck tires. The data base established will allow for comparison of the tire noise generated by military and commercial truck tires. The study investigated the influence of load and speed on the noise generated by tires with four different tread designs: the standard Army tire, a retread of Army design and commercial tires with rib and cross-bar type tread patterns. Army and commercial trucks were utilized as test vehicles. In addition, the report includes a discussion of the measurement and analysis techniques utilized for the establishment of the data base.
