TRUCK NOISE I-B. SPECTRAL AND DIRECTIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF NOISE GENERATED BY TRUCK TIRES

The report is the third in a series published as a result of Department of Transportation sponsored truck tire noise research conducted by the National Bureau of Standards. The previous reports (OST-ONA-71-9 and OST/TST-72-1) contained details of the test design, test procedures, and an inventory of maximum A-weighted sound level data for typical rib, cross-bar, and retread type truck tires. A test sample of nine tread designs, estimated to represent 70-80% (based on discussions with fleet owners) of the truck tire population on the road today, was investigated considering noise levels as a function of the following variables: wear, loading, speed, pavement surface, and tire location. Test vehicles included both single-chassis vehicles and tractor trailers.
