Measuring the Exposure to Sound Samples in Subjective Experiments


Yan, L; Chen, K; Gomez, F; Stoop, R (2012). Measuring the Exposure to Sound Samples in Subjective Experiments. In: Acoustics 2012, Hong Kong, China, 13 May 2012 - 18 May 2012.

Abstract

Traditional measures of environmental noise exposure concentrate on time and power (e.g. Ldn). For short measurements, time is, however, of secondary importance and the approach may come up with misleading results. In this paper, we propose a novel method based on short-term dose values evaluated along the playing time of the sound samples, to solve this problem. A comprehensive study on potentially influencing factors is carried out, discussing the partitioning method for short-term period analysis, the statistical treatment of the short-term dose values and four different frequency weightings. Eleven indices are then used to measure the exposure of the fixed duration sound sample. This lays the groundwork for the dose-annoyance relationship via subjective experiments.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
