EFFECTS OF A TRAFFIC NOISE BACKGROUND ON JUDGEMENTS OF AIRCRAFT NOISE

A study was conducted in which subjects judged aircraft noises in the presence of road traffic background noise. Two different techniques for presenting the background noises were evaluated. For one technique, the background noise was continuous over the whole of a test session. For the other, the background noise was changed with each aircraft noise. A range of aircraft noise levels and traffic noise levels were presented to simulate typical indoor levels. /AUTHOR/
