INVESTIGATION INTO ANNOYANCE CAUSED BY FLUCTUATING NOISE LEVELS

UNTERSUCHUNGEN ZURLAESTIGKEIT ZEITLICH SCHWANKENDER GERAEUSCHBEISPIELE

The primary aim of this investigation was to ascertain physical values which approximate well with the subjective gauge of annoyance caused by fluctuating noise levels. Other investigations, particularly field experiments, are concerned with finding physical values which correlate as nearly as possible with the subjective classification of noises on a scale of annoyance. The tests were carried out in a laboratory with about 20 subjects. Subjects were asked which of two noises they had heard was most disturbing. The most important results of this investigation are presented. /TRRL/
