A SIMPLE METHOD FOR PREDICTING SUBJECTIVE RESPONSE TO NOISE ON NAVY SHIPS

A graphical method of data analysis is presented for predicting response of shipboard personnel to airborne noise when compartment type and sound level are specified. To illustrate application of the method, the author used the subjective responses of personnel rate stateroom noise aboard eight U.S. Naval ships on a 5-point scale ranging from satisfactory to unsatisfactory. These ratings were then plotted as a function of A-weighted sound level and three parameters were estimated. Graphs for predicting subjective ratings from level were then constructed. (Author)
